Tuition & Affordability

Tuition Rates

Archbishop Ryan Catholic High School works diligently to find new ways to reduce administrative costs, increase gifts from our alumni and supporters, and keep tuition increases to a minimum. Most importantly, we want to ensure financial literacy among our families so you know exactly how much you're paying for your child's quality education.


The cost to Ryan of educating a child is not fully covered by his or her tuition. Fortunately, we have a generous group of supporters that makes up that difference through fundraising and development. Because of the support we receive from our alumni and friends, Archbishop Ryan does not require students or families to participate in any mandatory fundraising activities. For more information on how you can help finance our future, please contact Ed Hughes, Director of Development.

The School Fee Explained

Archbishop Ryan's tuition is broken down into two parts: Tuition and the School Fee. Tuition is used to pay things like teachers' salaries and building utilities. In addition to the tuition, each school charges a school fee. This is used to maintain the school's internal programs. Your school fee covers different items at each school. In an effort to be transparent about the cost of a Catholic education at AR, we've bundled our fees that are traditionally charged individually throughout the school year into our "school fee." This provides parents with financial literacy and allows them the opportunity to budget appropriately without surprise fees or costs.
