Tuition Information

Tuition Information

At Stella Maris Academy, we work to make Catholic school education financially accessible to all who desire. Financial contributions through tuition is one way Stella Maris Academy families help fund the cost of education. While tuition offsets much of the true cost of approximately $6,700 to educate each child, Stella Maris Academy relies on generous philanthropic support from our community. With this support, we offer a tuition policy to all of our families that is less than the cost of education. 

For the 2017-18 academic year, thank you to the generosity of our parishes and donors, we awarded over $175,000 in Community Support Scholarships helping many families experience a Stella Maris Academy education. Contact our Admissions Office for more information about our academic programs and community support scholarships.
