Tuition, Grants & Aid
By choosing a Catholic school, a family is choosing to invest in a child's future. A future of college and career success, but more importantly the daily reminder to strive towards eternal reward in heaven. A Catholic school education is a financial investment, and our graduates and their families would attest that it is well worth it!
St. Maria Goretti Catholic High School works to make Catholic education affordable and accessible for all families who seek it. Please see below for tuition, grant and aid, and scholarship information.
Grants, & Aid
St. Maria Goretti Catholic High School understands the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. Although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, schools and parishes, as well as the Archdiocese of Baltimore, devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school community benefits by attracting students who otherwise would not be able to attend.
