The following announcement on tuition for the 2021-2022 school year was made by Mr. George Andrews, President of Mount Saint Joseph High School, on Monday, February 8, 2021.
Dear Mount Saint Joseph Family,
During this time of uncertainty, we at Mount Saint Joseph are so thankful for everyone in our school community who has kept us strong.
Our parents who have invested in their sons and made the sacrifice to send them to Mount Saint Joseph, and then sacrificed some more when the economy became uncertain.
Our alumni who have given back so families who have faced financial challenges could be assured that their sons can continue receiving the best education at The Mount.
Our students who continue to give their best despite so many disruptions to their regular lives.
Our faculty and staff who continue to adapt and exceed the needs of students while encouraging them to grow together.
The unified belief in our mission has fortified Mount Saint Joseph and helped us continue on a path towards a bright future. This year, even with the added expenses to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 and increase our technological capabilities, I am pleased to announce that for the first time in 45 years, we are freezing tuition for the 2021-2022 school year. We are able to keep tuition at the current rate of $16,750 (regular program) because of excellent planning by our school leadership and the selfless generosity of our school community. That same generosity also allows us to price our tuition $1,850 less than what it actually costs to educate a student at Mount Saint Joseph. As stated in our mission, the enduring personal relationships within our community are paramount, so it is important that we “take care of the boys” and of each other.
In the current environment, we are proud that 876 students have been able to choose their learning environment and participate in classes, extracurricular activities, and even some sports this year. Our students deserve the best, and we are grateful that we can provide a safe and exceptional education that is much more valuable than the cost of tuition.
