Tuition and Tuition Assistance


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 (proposed–pending Board approval): $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 (proposed–pending Board approval): $9,760

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 (proposed–pending Board approval): $10,430
