Tuition and Tuition Assistance

Tuition

Scecina Memorial High School strives to maintain affordable tuition levels for our families. We are committed to providing tuition assistance to more than 60% 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:


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 or not you are listed as a Participating Catholic at your parish, please contact the parish directly. 

The 2014-2015 Participating Catholic Rate: $7,690


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 2014-2015 Non-Catholic/Catholic Educated Rate: $9,760


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 2014-2015 Non-Catholic Rate: $10,430

Need-Based Tuition Assistance

Scecina Memorial works with Private School Aid Service (PSAS) to award assistance based on percentage of verified family need. Financial assistance awards are determined in late April, followed by notifications in mid-May.

You may now apply for tuition assistance online by using the link below. Families may also apply by mail. By using this link you can fill out the application, pay the fee to PSAS, and upload your supporting documentation. When you follow the link, you will first see the step by step instructions for making the application. Please follow the instructions to complete the process. If you are unable to upload the documents, you can still apply on-line and then fax or mail the supporting documentation in to PSAS after you have completed the online application.

The on-line processing fee is $27.00, while the processing fee for mailing paper applications is $30.00. The priority deadline was March 3, 2015. Applications submitted after March 10, 2015 require a higher application fee, these later applications may be subject to receiving a lower tuition assistance award than those submitted by March 3rd.

For those choosing to process by mail, the completed application, along with the processing fee and all supporting documentation should be mailed directly to:
