Tuition & Financial Aid

The Archdiocese of Washington (ADW) is committed to keeping Catholic schools as affordable as possible for families seeking an excellent Catholic education for their children, especially families with financial needs and those with multiple children in our schools.

Recognizing how economically challenging these times are, we encourage you to apply for financial aid. More than $650,000 in grants were awarded last year to approximately 20% of Holy Trinity students. Students currently receive grants ranging from 5% to 95% of the full tuition. Admissions decisions are made separate from any financial aid requests or decisions.

Parents are responsible for the whole tuition upon accepting a child’s placement in class. Tuition and fees are not refundable. A signed Admissions and Tuition Agreement is required each year.


Tuition and Fee Payment: Holy Trinity School uses a tuition management group, TADS, to assist in enrollment, registration and collection of its tuition and fees. TADS will send notification to families when tuition agreements are available and when registration/enrollment is open to optional programs. Parents agree to abide by the terms and conditions provided in each of the TADS agreements. Payment of all tuition and fees is due at time of agreement unless a monthly payment option is determined to be necessary. Monthly payments will begin no earlier than June for the next school year.

Instructional: All instructional fees are included in the tuition rate (textbooks, art, technology and yearbook). Additional fees may be charged for some field trips, school events and other activities.
