Tuition & Affordability

Tuition & Fees

The tuition at Cor Jesu for the 2023-24 school year is $18,775, plus a $375 general service fee and a $650 technology fee.

Tuition is payable in several plans. Additional charges include uniforms and books. A $500 deposit per student is made with online enrollment by March 1 each year, and is deducted from the total tuition owed. To further streamline and secure payment processing, incidental fees (i.e., athletic participation fees, AP exam fees, etc.) will be collected through Blackbaud Tuition Management (formerly SMART) accounts.
