Tuition and Affordability

At SCCS we are committed to partnering with families from a wide range of economic backgrounds. Our admissions process is an open conversation that provides financial clarity upfront around your decision to enroll. We keep our tuition rates affordable and provide financial aid for students from kindergarten through eighth grade based on household income and ability to pay.

We invite you to learn more about our financial aid and scholarship options on this page and reach out to our admissions director Erin McLaury with any questions.

Financial Aid and Scholarships

The financial aid process at SCCS runs concurrently with our application process. Once an application is submitted there are two ways that families can apply for aid and scholarships at SCCS. We set aside a portion of our school budget to provide financial aid for our school families. We also partner with the St. Louis Catholic Archdiocese through the Today and Tomorrow Education Foundation to connect our families with their scholarships for Christian education in St. Louis City. For all families applying for financial aid who live within the St. Louis City limits, we require that you complete both an internal financial aid application and an application with the Today & Tomorrow Educational Foundation. Those families who reside outside the city limits need only complete our internal application.

Other Fees

SCCS strives to keep the cost of extracurricular activities at a reasonable and affordable rate for participating students. Some activities that require additional payment include: soccer, choir, Shakespeare cast and crew, intramural sports, and chess. The fees associated with these activities range from as little as $20 per student to $150 per student. Fees are published alongside optional registration for these activities. We also work with families for whom cost may be a barrier to their child participating in extracurricular activities.
