Over 40,000 students are educated each year in the Archdiocese of Boston’s 124 elementary and secondary schools. Catholic schools provide an excellent educational trajectory, with 99% of students graduating from high school and 97% going on to college. While the average Catholic school tuition is $4,500 per student, the actual cost of educating a child averages $6,000. Funds from endowments such as those listed below help to close the gap and keep Catholic schools financially healthy, academically strong, and faith-filled.
