Tuition and Fees

As a Catholic high school sponsored by the Archdiocese of St. Louis, we do not receive public financial support. Instead, our mission is supported by student tuition, annual fund-raising events, and the generosity of our many benefactors.

While we strive to provide a high-quality, faith-based education, we also strive to keep costs affordable and provide financial assistance where needed. In return, we expect our families to make a Duchesne education a top priority, both in budgeting their financial resources and their time.

Tuition for the upcoming school year is established by the Duchesne Advisory Board each spring. As you can see, a Duchesne education is a great value!

2024-2025 School Year

First Child $12,950
Second Child $10,950
Third Child $3,237.50

Duchesne does not charge extra fees for technology usage or science lab fees or textbook use. We do provide a secured wireless network and students are required to purchase and bring his or her own iPad to use on campus.

The cost to educate a student during the 2023-24 school year is $17,000.  Our tuition for the 2024-25 school year is only $12,950. We are blessed to make up this difference through the generosity of our community. Many of our families struggle to pay the actual tuition, even after financial aid is awarded, while other families are blessed with the ability to pay more. Please consider a tax deductible donation to the Family Scholarships Fund to allow us to further assist our families and promote the good news of Catholic education.
