Tuition and Fees

At Holy Family, we understand firsthand that choosing a private Catholic education is a big commitment. We also know that what is truly valuable often requires some form of sacrifice, and we are committed to making sure that every dollar you invest in your child's future through Holy Family Catholic Schools helps to enrich the lives of your family.

2024-2025 Tuition Rates

At Holy Family, thanks to our supporting parishes, no family pays the full per-pupil cost-to-educate. Families who are active parishioners of a supporting parish are awarded with a greater parish subsidy, which is reflected in our tiered tuition rates.
Elementary (K-5) $7,908 $6,440 $6,650 $7,040
Mazzuchelli Catholic Middle School (6-8) $8,803 $6,720 $6,930 $7,320
Wahlert Catholic High School (9-12) $11,202 $8,040 $8,250 $8,640

“I am so thankful for the solid AP and dual enrollment options at Wahlert Catholic High School. If one assumes the average cost of tuition, room and board, fees and books at college is $30,000 per year, we have more than broken even when looking at Wahlert tuition paid over four years versus the amount of college credit our son graduated with from Wahlert. He started college with 41 credits from AP and college classes. Ten of them are from AP Spanish alone.  All of freshman year and half of sophomore year were completed before setting foot on campus thanks to these offerings. And this doesn’t even take into consideration the scholarships earned from being academically well-prepared at Wahlert. We are thankful!”
– Cheryl, Holy Family parent
