Tuition and Fees

At Holy Family, we understand firsthand that making the choice of a private, Catholic education is a commitment for your family. But we also believe that anything truly valuable demands some type of sacrifice, and we are committed to making sure that every dollar you spend toward your child's future is worthwhile.

“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 is graduating from Wahlert with. He will come into college with 41 credits from AP and college classes.  10 of them are from AP Spanish alone.  All of freshman year and half of sophomore year are complete 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
