Catholic Review survey shows Catholic high school tuition remains more affordable than most nonpublic schools

Catholic high schools are more affordable than most of their peers, as evidenced in the Catholic Review’s annual survey of cost of attendance among nonpublic schools within the Archdiocese of Baltimore, which encompasses Baltimore City and nine counties.

The information in the following chart was compiled from high school websites and administrators. For comparative purposes, it includes fellow members of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association and the Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland.

When available and consistent across all grades, fees were added to tuition to come up with the cost of attendance for the 2018-19 school year. Fees for athletics and graduation were not included, nor were costs for special enrichment programs.

For complete information about high school costs, parents and students should visit individual schools and their websites.
