2017-2018 Tuition

Tuition Payments may be made in one, two or ten monthly payments. Additionally, each year we ask parents to participate in the Annual Fund Drive through the Parent Pledge Program, a tax-deductible commitment. Our goal is 100% participation in the program so that the responsibility of helping to keep Marin Catholic financially strong will be shared as equitably as possible.

2017-18 Annual Tuition $19,550
Registration Fee $800

2018-2019 tuition will be posted by January 26, 2018.

This year Marin Catholic committed approximately $2 million in tuition assistance and scholarships. Both tuition assistance and scholarships are awarded based on need as demonstrated through the tuition assistance application process.

If you are interested in being considered for tuition assistance you should indicate "yes" on the application for admissions. You will be emailed with specific instructions and deadlines.

Please note that in order to be considered for tuition assistance, you must apply each year your student will attend Marin Catholic. 

Tuition Assistance

Marin Catholic is using TADS to process all requests for tuition assistance for the 2018/19 school year. All families interested in receiving tuition assistance for 2018/19 (both new awards and renewals of prior awards) are required to complete the online TADS application. The information and documentation that families provide during the TADS process will be reviewed, analyzed, and summarized by TADS and then provided to the Tuition Assistance Committee of Marin Catholic. The Committee will make all award decisions based on the information provided to TADS and the School's policies. Applicants will be notified of awards on the dates shown in the sidebar.

Tuition assistance applications will be considered only for currently enrolled students and prospective new students who have completed the admissions application.

Marin Catholic Scholarships

All award decisions are made based on the information provided in the TADS application process and are based on financial need. Most tuition assistance awards are funded by Marin Catholic's operating fund.
