An investment in your child's future

A John Carroll education means opportunity for a lifetime — opportunity that starts in the classroom and extends into careers. It’s an investment in your child’s future — their forever.

Scholarship applications will be available at the start of September.


Tuition for the 2024–2025 school year is $20,400 for domestic students. The tuition is set for the upcoming school year by the Board of Trustees each January. Additional costs apply for technology (including the purchase of a laptop), uniforms, textbooks, new student registration, Parent Association membership and bus transportation (optional).

A variety of payment plans ranging from 1-pay to 22-pay options are available. Payment plans are required for 4, 10, 20 or 21 pay plans and are set up during enrollment in Veracross through VC Pay. VC Pay accounts may also be used to pay for incidentals during the school year, such as for field trips. Tuition insurance is required for any payment plan other than 1-pay.

Financial aid

We understand that enrolling your child in an independent school is a significant investment that may require planning and drawing from a variety of resources. As we uphold our mission, the School is committed to providing and sharing tuition assistance opportunities through financial aid, tuition discounts and scholarships.

Support & guidance

The Admissions Office provides guidance for all families interested in the financial aid process. Our Financial Aid committee closely reviews your family’s unique financial situation based on evaluation from FACTS Management Company (FACTS), a third-party vendor, and makes allocations based on whether your child qualifies for aid. Please review John Carroll’s Financial Aid Policy before applying.

Eligibility & criteria

The John Carroll School offers limited financial assistance to eligible families, based on documented financial need. Financial Aid grants are awarded annually and deducted from tuition. Families must reapply every year. The School reserves the right to rescind awards if the required documentation of income, assets and other data is not provided by the deadlines that are published.

To be considered for need-based aid for the 2024–2025 school year, families must submit the online FACTS financial aid application between between October and December 2023 (dates TBD). 2023 tax returns and W-2s must be uploaded to FACTS with the financial aid application, 2023 W-2s must be uploaded by February 15, 2024 and 2023 tax returns no later than May 1, 2024 for income verification.
