Tuition & Grant/Aid

Tuition

Tuition is defined as a fee for instruction at a formal institution of learning. The Latin root word of tuition is tueri, which means to protect. Many families choose to make a financial investment in Catholic education for this very reason - to protect and shape their child's future. Today's Catholic schools understand the importance of educating students for 21st century challenges and opportunities, building a foundation of faith, knowledge and skills upon which to shape a positive future.

Monsignor Slade's Catholic School competitive tuition rates are below, followed by information on how our school works to make Catholic education affordable and accessible for all families who seek it. We encourage you to investigate the opportunities for scholarships or tuition assistance also listed below.

Grant & Aid

The financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school is understood and appreciated. Although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, each school, parish and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school communities benefit by attracting students that otherwise would not be able to attend our schools.

FACTS

FACTS is the tuition management and grant and aid platform used by the schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore. All families are asked to create an account with FACTS to manage their tuition payments. The grant and aid application is housed on the same platform for every school, parish, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore assistance. Therefore, a family need apply only once for possible support from these various sources. More information about FACTS can be found here.
