Scecina Memorial High School strives to maintain affordable tuition levels for our families. We are committed to providing tuition assistance to more than 60 percent of our families through our school advancement efforts. Each year, through the generosity of our benefactors, attending Scecina Memorial becomes a reality for students who would otherwise not be able to obtain a Catholic, college preparatory education.

The Scecina Memorial High School Board of Directors reviews tuition levels annually. Scecina Memorial consistently offers one of the most competitive, value-added tuition rates in the Indianapolis area.  Reflecting the role of East Deanery parishes in subsidizing our Catholic students' education, we offer three tuition categories. These rates pertain to the 2016-2017 school year. 

Participating Catholic: This tuition category applies to families who are registered with a Catholic parish, attend Mass regularly, and support the parish through tithing. Each year, the Scecina Memorial Tuition Office confirms a family's status with the parish. If you have questions about whether you are listed as a Participating Catholic at your parish, please contact the parish directly. 

The 2016-2017 Participating Catholic Rate: $8,840


Non-Catholic/Catholic Educated: This category applies to non-Catholic families who have enrolled their child in a Catholic grade school or Scecina Memorial for at least one year prior to the year they are enrolling or re-enrolling at Scecina Memorial High School. 

The 2016-2017 Non-Catholic/Catholic Educated Rate$11,105


 Non-Catholic: This category applies to families who are not Catholic and whose child was not enrolled in a Catholic grade school in the year prior to enrolling at Scecina Memorial. 

The 2016-2017 Non-Catholic Rate: $11,835
