Keeping Tuition Affordable

Choosing a Catholic education for your child can be a big decision that involves a significant investment. Thanks to many loyal donors, alumni and Tippecanoe County parishioners, the Lafayette Catholic School System has been able to keep the cost to educate a student at about 60% of its public counterparts. And even better, the actual tuition cost charged is less than the cost to educate each student.

Keeping tuition affordable for as many families as possible, while maintaining a faith-based education preparing more than 95% our graduates to go onto college, is a primary goal for the Lafayette Catholic School System. Affordable is different for every family. This is why our school community works diligently to make it possible for more than $2.5 million need-based Student Aid to be awarded to more than 50% of our student population.

Lara & Tony Behr
Children are expensive! There is no doubt about it. But the best money I can spend on my children is an education that will not only challenge them academically, but one that shapes their heart and soul all through their formative years. There is no better investment for my children than providing them the best education possible to prepare them to be compassionate and productive citizens.

Holley & Pat Donahoe
We knew providing a Catholic education for our boys was going to be a challenge. But it was important enough to our children’s future that we had to try. Every ounce of effort along the way has been worth it in so many unexpected ways. Some people might say we have made sacrifices, but we think it was just rearranging our financial priorities.

Kate & Karl Hensley
When we apply for Student Aid each year, just like with our boys in college, we trust God will take care of us. Applying for aid is easy and there are always people available to answer any questions we may have.  There have been years where I have no idea how it would financially all come together, but it always does.  We are thankful for the strong values, the challenging academic curriculum, and the wonderful LCSS family!
