Rockhurst Tuition

Rockhurst High School is a college preparatory educational institution sponsored by the Society of Jesus. Rockhurst does not receive public or church financial support. Rather, Rockhurst's educational mission is supported by the payment of tuition by the families of our students, by annual fundraising events, and by the generosity of our many benefactors.

Tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year is $13,700, $1,000 for the Lunch Fee, and a $200 Technology Fee, for a total of $14,900.  Tuition and fee's can be paid annualy, in a four payment plan, or a ten payment plan.  Please note, the four and ten payment plans have a convenience fee associated. This tuition also includes a student activity fee that supports pastoral, certain athletic and co-curricular activities, and includes the Quarry, the Rockhurst High School yearbook. In addition, families will be responsible for purchasing their son's iPad. The tuition for the upcoming year is established by the Board of Trustees each spring.

Financial Aid

Rockhurst High School will award $2.7 million in financial assistance to more than 470 students for the 2019-2020 academic year. The Financial Aid Committee's evaluation takes into account the analysis of a family's need by an independent agency, academic performance, and a student's enthusiasm for a Rockhurst education.
The generosity of others permits Rockhurst to award scholarships to many of our incoming students. With only the four HSPT scholarship exceptions to the left, scholarship awards are based on financial need and merit. In order to be eligible for a scholarship, your family must file for financial aid with FAIR.  There are no separate applications or forms for scholarships.
Incoming freshmen may also qualify for the President's Scholarship, the Ignatian Scholarship, the Regis Scholarship, or the Kolvenbach Scholarship based upon their composite score on the High School Placement Test (no FAIR application required).  Please note: the High School Placement Test awards are only applicable to freshman year tuition.
