It is challenging to manage the finances of a large school given the parameter that, since the founding of Jesuit High School in 1847, no qualified young man has been refused admission because his family could not afford to pay all or part of the tuition. Obviously it takes a great deal of effort to ensure Jesuit remains available to young men from all socio-economic strata. First and foremost, tuition must be kept at a level affordable to nearly all families.
Tuition is $7,700 for the 2012 - 2013 school year. This amount represents one of the least expensive tuitions among Catholic and private high schools in the New Orleans area. (View a tuition comparison.)
Jesuitís finance office mails tuition bills in the middle of June and the middle of November.
The basic sum of $7,700 is payable either in a lump sum, or half by July 15, and the remaining half by December 1.
A 2.5% convenience fee is assessed for tuition payments made with a credit card.
The school will notify the parents of any student whose tuition account is in arrears.
A student will not be promoted to the next grade level, be allowed to graduate, or receive any transcripts until all indebtedness to the school has been satisfied, including any fines incurred by the student.

|Fees||There are fees ($6 - $110 depending on grade level) assessed for retreats; a $100 senior graduation fee; and a $50 lab fee for students enrolled in computer courses. |
Jesuit flourishes because of the generosity of its alumni and its parents who recognize the importance and value of a Jesuit education. Each year, through the Parentsí Annual Giving drive, parents voluntarily contribute the difference (the gap) between tuition and the actual cost of educating a Jesuit student. Parents give what they can afford. The gap for the 2012-2013 academic year is $2,573.
Alumni also help defray expenses and keep tuition affordable by their generous contributions to the Living Endowment Fund (LEF) drive.
