St. Brendan Parish and School strongly believes in the value of a Classical Catholic Education and works hard to ensure it is affordable for all families. The stated tuition for the 2024-25 school year is $6,166; however, every family is eligible for assistance through the EdChoice Expansion program, which bases awards on the family’s adjusted gross income. The registration fee for students in Pre-Kindergarten – Grade 8 is $75 per student.
For the 2024-25 school year, 78% of families at St. Brendan School have the entire cost of tuition covered through the EdChoice Expansion program, while families who receive only partial awards receive additional assistance through Parish Life Awards and the Angel Scholarship Fund. The average tuition paid by families not receiving full scholarships for the 2024-25 school year is $1,728.
Please contact the school office to find out if you qualify for a Parish Life Award.
* Parish Life Award - This award is available to families who are registered members at St. Brendan Parish, as well as any other local Catholic Parish as determined by the neighboring Pastor. Families are expected to actively participate in the life of the Parish, including regular attendance at Mass, participation in sacramental programs, and support school and parish fundraisers and events. Parish Life Awards are based on the tuition balance due after any/all other scholarship funds are applied.
Please note that the Parish Life Award is determined on a case-by-case basis and factors in items such as the number of children enrolled in the school when determining the amount of the award.
The EdChoice Expansion Program is an income-based program with awards determined by the family’s adjusted gross income. Every family in the State of Ohio is eligible for some level of assistance, with scholarships ranging from $6,166 (full tuition for the 2024-25 school year) to $616.60. The EdChoice Expansion scholarship follows students from kindergarten through grade 12, and a family only needs to submit income verification with the initial application (but can submit it again if the family would qualify for a larger scholarship).
