We are well into our planning for next year, including new academic programs and enhanced offerings. After an extensive study by the Board’s Finance Committee, we are pleased to announce only a modest increase in next year’s tuition to keep up with inflation and the Cost of Living Allowance. Tuition for the 2016–17 school year is $12,500 for the high school and $7,950 for the Marian Division.
In September, students may take STEM classes as sophomores and Mandarin will be available in both the Marian Division and the high school. Naviance, an online college- and career-readiness solution that is quickly becoming the industry standard for high schools, is available to all students starting next year. Our investment in a 21st-century educational-technology platform to support iPads as a core feature of our learning experience offers significant savings over your child’s entire high school career.
To date, this year’s senior class acceptances include Boston College, Boston University, Harvard, the University of Massachusetts, Merrimack College, Northeastern University, Providence College, Seton Hall University, Stonehill College and Tufts University. We are pleased to report that our students are engaged and the hallways are buzzing with school spirit.
St. Mary’s continues to increase the level of tuition assistance and scholarships available, making us accessible to every eligible student who wishes to attend. We remain a high-quality and affordable option for your family.
