Tuition and Fees
We are pleased to announce an innovative plan to lock in tuition for our students, which will provide you with tuition certainty while your children are enrolled at Carroll. Our plan has been approved by the Office of Catholic Education of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
Tuition for the incoming Carroll Class of 2020 will be locked in at $9,500 a year; current freshmen (Class of 2019), will pay $8,200 a year for the next three years; current sophomores (Class of 2018), will pay $7,900 a year for the next two years, and tuition for current juniors (Class of 2017) will be $7,600 for their senior year. The annual school fee for all classes remains at $1,845 for 2016-17.
Families at Archbishop Carroll with three or more children in Archdiocesan High Schools will continue to receive a family discount. The net amount the family will pay will be based on the tuition for the two oldest children.
Additional revenue generated by the tuition guarantee will be used to fund academics, Campus Ministry, counseling and college prep, allowing us to make strategic investments in key content areas, including:
- Furthering our commitment to CarrollU, the all-encompassing program that provides extensive and diversified services to the entire Carroll student body; CarrollU includes college prep, learning support, learning strategies, counseling, drug and alcohol awareness, social emotional learning and coping skills
- Hiring new faculty to reduce the student/teacher ratio
- Investing in technology in innovative ways to grow learning at Carroll
- Investing in Campus Ministry to create a more robust program, improving retreats and student service experiences, and sending students on mission trips
Please note, investment in facility improvements will move forward as well. However, fundraising, not tuition revenue, is used to fund those projects at Carroll.
This budgeting and tuition process is consistent with our mission: a commitment to excellence in Catholic identity, academic, and social development, as well as our pledge to offer the highest quality Catholic education in Philadelphia.
Carroll continues to be a leader in Catholic secondary education, where every day, we work diligently to create the most enriching high school experience possible for your children. Through extensive collaborative research and planning, we have developed a model that will provide you with tuition certainty while your children are enrolled at Carroll. We understand that many of you have to make sacrifices to send your children to Carroll. Through significant tuition assistance and financial aid, we remain committed to making a Carroll education available and accessible to families who want to enroll their children in our school.
