At Saint Leo the Great School, we believe in giving every child the opportunity of an excellent Catholic education. We work with every family to make Catholic education accessible to anyone who seeks it. While the actual cost to educate a student at Saint Leo the Great School is approximately $7,400.00, our tuition rates listed below demonstrate the discount we are able to offer through our Variable Tuition Program to meet the varied needs and means of our families. The essence of this program is to adopt a comprehensive Fair Share Tuition Program based on the actual cost of education.
2023-2024 Tuition Details
(for Pre-K4 full day through 8th Grade)
Projected Cost/Student: $7,400
Variable Base Tuition Range: $3,000 – $5,850
Fair Share Tuition Rate:
Practicing Catholics = $6,600
Non-Catholics = $7,200
All families also qualify for the $400/Additional Child Discount.
There are two ways to be considered for the Variable Base Tuition:
Apply for financial aid through Simple Tuition Solutions (STS) and tuition will be established based on your demonstrated need. Many will fall within the range of $3,000 – $5,850.
Participate in the SPE Program by completing an SPE Joinder Agreement in the minimum amount of $3,500, which results in an “after-tax cost” to you of only $350. Your participation in SPE will make you eligible for the Tuition Rate of $5,850. For more information about the SPE Program click here.
The Fair Share Tuition Rate is for families that choose to NOT participate in the SPE program or complete the STS application. This will also apply to families that do not have a demonstrated financial need through STS.

Our Constant Parish Commitment
No Parishioner will ever be denied a Catholic Education in our Parish School because of Financial Need. If, once the Variable Tuition is proposed, a family desires a reduction because of extenuating circumstances, they only need to contact Father Hahn to arrange a meeting.
Any family who seeks financial assistance must complete the online Simple Tuition Solutions (STS) Financial Aid Application.
Please note: The application fee will be paid by Saint Leo the Great School.
An annual family registration fee of $150.00 is due upon acceptance.
