"Sharing the Love of the Heart of Christ"

Tuition & Financial Aid

Since the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus founded Cor Jesu in 1956, our goal has been to make a high-quality Catholic education accessible to any academically qualified young woman.

This year a generous alumna and her husband have made an unprecedented commitment to advance that mission. Thanks to their donation, Cor Jesu will meet:
100% of the calculated need for the Class of 2024
*This financial aid program will be renewable, based on the family's annual calculated need, for all four years of a student's high school career at Cor Jesu.
