Financial Information

2017 - 2018 Tuition & Fees

Bishop Kelley is a private institution that does not receive funding from local, state, or federal governments. Tuition payments are therefore the primary source of funding to offset the cost to educate each student. Tuition payments alone do not cover the total cost. The school’s endowment as well as donations from our generous benefactors assist with ensuring the financial strength of Bishop Kelley.

Tuition Assistance

If you feel Bishop Kelley is the place for your child and have concerns about financial limitations, we encourage you to submit an application for tuition assistance.  Families with a demonstrated financial need likely will be awarded tuition assistance.  Bishop Kelley uses a nationally standardized system for analysis offered through a FACTS Grant & Aid Application.  Bishop Kelley is committed to working with families to assist with making your child a “Comet” for life!

2016-2017 School Year “Stats”

  •  Over $750,000 awarded to students.
  •  Over 20% of Bishop Kelley’s students received tuition assistance.
  •  Awards ranged from $1,000 to $6,500.
  •  Average award $4,310.

Applying for Tuition Assistance

Families should simultaneously apply for tuition assistance while completing the admissions application process.  All tuition assistance applications and the review process are confidential and are not a consideration for acceptance to Bishop Kelley.

The first step is to complete your FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment and follow instructions through completion.  Please note, for our Spanish speaking parents, there is a Spanish conversion button in the top right corner of the screen.  There is a cost of $30 to submit your assessment and the assessment will not be considered until the fee is paid and all applicable tax documents are submitted.  The deadline for submittal is April 30th with the committee meeting by May 15th to review.  Given the limited financial aid resources, Bishop Kelley may not be able to meet all demonstrated need for financial aid.
