A Mount St. Mary education is a solid investment in your daughter’s future. Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is $12,350 plus administrative fees of $485 and a one-time iPad fee of $225. Financial aid is available in several ways:

Scholarships

Eighth graders who choose Mount St. Mary Academy as their first choice for high school are eligible for dozens of scholarships and awards we offer.

Some scholarships are application-based. These awards recognize a variety of criteria, such as: leadership, service, grades, desire to attend Mount St. Mary, etc. Some also take financial need into account. All application-based awards are given to first-choice test takers after they complete the High School Placement Test on November 23, 2019. Students may apply for every scholarship for which they believe they are eligible, based on the stated criteria.

Other scholarships are awarded based on placement exam results. There is no separate application for these awards, and they vary in value from half tuition to partial tuition awards for all four years.
