Tuition & Tuition Assistance
Through the support of alumni, parents and friends, CJ is able to offer scholarships and tuition assistance that can greatly reduce the cost of a student’s CJ experience. CJ and its partners awarded nearly $1.7 million in scholarships and tuition assistance for the 2011-12 school year to nearly 70% of all students.

Catholic Leadership and Heritage Scholarships
Renewable Catholic Scholarships
CJ actively supports outstanding students and their families who invest in Catholic education. The Catholic Leadership and Heritage Scholarships are awarded to exceptional students. Young men and women who demonstrate academic success, leadership and service experiences, and commitment to their faith will be considered. To be eligible, students must take the High School Placement Test (HSPT) and submit the admissions application by December 1, 2012 (postmark). Some of these scholarships are renewable for all four years.
Tuition Payment Plans
CJ contracts with FACTS Tuition Management to handle the quarterly and monthly payment options. Payments may be withdrawn from a bank account or applied to a credit card. Full and semi-payments are paid directly to CJ. Families must select a method of payment at registration time:
- Annual payment due in mid-July
- Semi-annual payments due in July and December
- Quarterly payments due in July, October, January and April
- Ten monthly payments due July through April (finance entire amount at 6% interest)
- Ten monthly payments due July through April (down payment in July, finance the balance at 6% interest)
$7,910 families registered as members of a Catholic parish
$9,830 for private families
NOTE: For the 2012-13 school year, all families who applied for tuition assistance received aid. In many instances, the assistance received greatly reduced the cost of a student's CJ experience. Families who submit a PSAS form by December 1, 2012 will know how much assistance they will receive for the 2013-14 school year before they register in February.
