Tuition and Financial Assistance

From in-person tours to virtual events, we have tons of ways for you to discover what it’s like to be a Mountie!

Students at Mount Saint Charles have an exceptional experience, and coming here is a lifelong investment in your daughter’s or son’s future. We’ve worked to make a Mount education affordable for everyone who feels our school is the right fit for their child, and we’ve kept tuition as low as possible and provided financial assistance to eligible families – we award more than $500,000 annually to help our families.

Details and requirements are outlined below, as are tuition rates, scholarships, and grant-funded financial assistance opportunities. We welcome you to contact Carrie Saladin of the Mount business office at 401-769-0310, ext. 107, or by emailing saladinc@mtstcharles.org with any additional questions.

When Mount graduates go to college, their college merit aid typically exceeds their high school tuition by a wide margin. The Class of 2022 earned an average of $187,000 in merit aid. That’s almost three times the current tuition for four years at Mount Saint Charles. In addition, Mount graduates are responsible, intelligent, compassionate young adults with a strong moral compass who are prepared for college and life. That return on the investment on Mount is priceless.

AUTOMATIC REGISTRATION RENEWAL PROCESS FOR CURRENT STUDENTS

March 1

Mount Saint Charles must be notified by this date  if: 

  • you wish to change the payment plan option for the next school year; or
  • you do not plan to re-enroll your child at Mount.

Mount will continue to bill you under the same tuition payment plan for the duration of your child’s enrollment unless notified in writing prior to March 1 for the upcoming school year.  Returning students are considered registered students for the next year after March 1 whether or not the electronic contract was signed and  completed.

TUITION ASSISTANCE

Grants / Financial Aid

  • Financial Aid must be applied for each year for all students and is awarded based on financial need.
  • Applications are only reviewed once a family applies for admission.
  • Students on disciplinary probation will not be considered regardless of need. If significant disciplinary problems arise mid-year, financial aid award may be revoked and the full tuition balance will become due.
  • Students must maintain a “C” average in order to continue receiving financial aid. Students receiving an average less than “C” will no longer be eligible for financial assistance.
  • Students who do not meet the academic requirements of the school and are repeatedly placed on Academic Probation may have their financial aid rescinded.
  • Financial aid will be applied evenly across all scheduled payments, based on the payment selection.
  • If a student withdraws from school before the end of the year, financial aid will be proportional to the time the student attended school.

Need-based grants are determined using the recommendations of an independent firm that summarizes financial data as provided by the parents along with special circumstances made known to the Academy.  There are no set amounts, but our philosophy is to help as many families as possible with some aid rather than a few families with large amounts of aid.  Limited aid is available at the middle school level as the pool of aid is reserved for the increased tuition at the high school level.

Apply for Financial Aid online at https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3CLYQ.   The initial deadline is set by the Diocese of Providence in mid-February.  On-time applications are crucial for families seeking significant aid.  We accept applications after the deadline, though the amount of available money diminishes as the next school year approaches.  Contact the MSC Business Office for specific information regarding your Financial Aid application.
