Tuition Notes
Gross Catholic is dedicated to making our integral, quality education an option for committed families and students. Our goal is to work with families, one on one, to arrive at a fair and feasible Individual Tuition Plan. Each year, our development programs raise funds to offset the difference between the true cost of education and the actual tuition our families pay. Your family�s Individual Tuition Plan may include an academic scholarship, financial need grant, or alumni legacy scholarship. In recent years, approximately 75 percent of our students pay reduced tuition.
