EDUCATION COSTS AND ASSISTANCE OPPORTUNITIES
$8,500 is the estimated real cost of educating one child at Metro Catholic for 2019-2020 school year.
Metro Catholic School is committed to providing an affordable quality education to children who need it the most, so financial aid is individualized and based on need, just like the curriculum. Administrators use information provided through a third-party income verification process along with each family’s circumstances when making financial aid decisions. Metro Catholic School also accepts vouchers from the Cleveland Scholarship and Tutoring Program (CSTP) and the EdChoice Scholarship Program.
Tuition typically covers a portion of Metro Catholic School’s operating expenses (approximately $8,500 per child per year). Parents generally pay only a portion of that full per pupil amount. Donations from individuals, foundations, corporations and organizations help cover the balance. This financial support is essential for Metro Catholic School to remain a model of education and to continue providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary to lead fulfilling lives.
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE OPPORTUNITIES
- Current State School Vouchers (Cleveland Scholarship and Tutoring and Ed Choice Program) cover full tuition. CSTP is a State of Ohio Education “Voucher” Program for qualifying families residing in Cleveland who want their child to attend a private or Catholic school in Cleveland. Applications are available at Metro Catholic School.
