Tuition for 2021-2022

The cost of tuition is $11,760 per student for the 2021-2022 school year. All families are encouraged to apply for tuition assistance.

Tuition only covers approximately two-thirds of the cost of educating our students. The remainder of the school's operating budget is met because of the generosity of alumni, benefactors and friends who support CJ's Annual Fund each year and modest funding from the State of Ohio.
