We recognize that high school tuition it is a major cost consideration for families, as they prepare to budget for college and other responsibilities. Because we were founded by families for families, we want to make a Catholic Memorial education affordable for your children.
To be true partners in the education and the Catholic faith formation which parents prize, we have created the Family Tuition Plan to make Catholic Memorial more attainable for entire families. No need to apply; the plan is automatic and it is available to all applicants from both supporting and non-supporting parishes. Please note that students must be concurrently enrolled in order to receive the discount.
Tuition for the 2016-2017 School Year:
Families of supporting parishes:
- First child: $10,405
- Second child: $8,905
- All others: $7,405
All other families:
- First child: $11,555
- Second child: $10,055
- All others: $8,555
Applications will be available in the office beginning in early January. All previous applicants and all incoming freshmen will receive their tuition assistance applications in the mail. Our tuition assistance program is based on individual family need.
CMH sponsors its own tuition assistance based on financial need. Financial need is determined by information provided to an outside evaluating agency. The agency provides Catholic Memorial with an unbiased, fact-based assessment of a family’s financial condition. There is a minimal fee charged by the outside agency for this service.
Financial information that is used to determine financial need:
- Income, both taxable and non-taxable
- Assets (home equity, other real estate, savings, stocks, etc.)
- Number of dependents
- Marital status
- Number of children attending tuition-charging schools
- Medical and dental costs not covered by insurance
- Unusual expenses such as nursing home, legal, child support, etc.
Required forms to be completed:
CMH Tuition Assistance Application (complete and send to CMH)
Covenant Tuition Services Application (complete and send to CTS)
Joint Custody Commitment Form (if applicable)
Range of Assistance Awarded:
For the 2015-2016 school year, the range of tuition assistance awarded to qualified applicants, per student, was $250-$9,050. Each family is required to contribute at least $1,500 towards tuition.
Who may apply:
Any current CMH family or any registered incoming freshman family may apply.
The placement test given in November to all 8th grade students interested in attending Catholic Memorial High School will also be used as the basis for determining the Rose and Louis Scrima Scholarship award recipient. The Rose and Louis Scrima Scholarship is worth approximately $1,500 and is renewable for all four years at CMH.
Additionally, the Lamberty-Kerrigan Music Scholarship Competition takes place in April/May. Incoming freshman are invited to compete for the best vocal performance and best instrumental solo performance of a selection taken from the Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) solo/ensemble list. The scholarships are $250 each (one for vocal & one for instrumental) and are presented annually to two members of the incoming freshman class.
Catholic Personnel Grant:
A parent or legal guardian that is a full-time employee at the Archdiocese of Milwaukee or at an Archdiocesan school or parish is qualified to receive a $4,000 discount on tuition per student. The discount awarded in the Family Tuition Plan does not apply when the Catholic Personnel Grant is used.
For outside scholarships, there are a few places you may want to contact. Catholic Financial Life and Catholic Order of Foresters offer scholarships to high school students who are members of their organizations. The cost is minimal to become a member.
