Inclusive Tuition

Dear Cardinal Newman Parents and Guardians,

We want to share with you that, in line with the goals of our Strategic Plan, we are moving to an inclusive tuition model for the 2023-2024 school year and beyond.  Registration, student activities, retreats, testing, participation in athletics, graduation, yearbook, parking, and all costs related to classrooms and academics are included in tuition, streamlining the enrollment and re-enrollment process for your family. The costs of uniforms, athletic spirit packs, food service, textbooks, and special field trips, which are charged by third-party vendors, will still be in effect.

The tuition for the 2023-2024 school year has been set to $20,700. This will provide competitive compensation for our talented teachers and staff, ensuring Cardinal Newman’s continued academic and spiritual excellence. We are proud to maintain, still, lower tuition than many local Catholic high schools and private schools. 

We acknowledge that when families invest in a Cardinal Newman education, it can mean a financial sacrifice. It is an investment that provides an exemplary Catholic education to each student that, as our mission proclaims, helps them become a person of faith, leadership, and service. Each one of our teachers, staff, and Board of Trustees honors the importance of that responsibility. Our dedication to your child is our mission and our ministry.

Our commitment to access and affordability allows us to provide tuition assistance to students with demonstrated financial need — over 36% of our families receive some form of tuition assistance.  This year we awarded over $1.25 million in financial aid.  If you have questions about whether your family might qualify for financial support, we invite you to explore our Tuition Assistance application. Please see our website for links to apply: www.cardinalnewman.org/admissions/tuition-fees/tuition-assistance.

Please direct any specific questions or comments regarding tuition and financial aid to our CFO, Anne Devlin, at finance@cardinalnewman.org. Thank you for entrusting us with your children and the opportunity to make a difference in your child’s life!

God bless you and your family,

Dr. Linda Norman, President
