We continued to experience a steep increase in financial need amongst our applicant pool that exceeds our tuition assistance resources. Please read the rest of this important tuition assistance statement »
We are mindful of the investment that you are making in your child’s education and understand that affording tuition is a major factor in whether your child attends Bishop O’Dowd High School. Here in the Admissions office, we do everything we can to ensure affordability for the widest range of students without sacrificing the top-notch education O’Dowd is known for.
Here are typical costs to attend O’Dowd (2017-18):
- $17,740 Tuition
- $1,100 Registration Deposit (non-refundable)
- $18,840 Total
Parents are also asked to make a tax-deductible pledge of $1,800 per year or more to bridge the gap between the actual cost of an O’Dowd education and the tuition charged. Those who are unable to donate that amount are asked to pledge what they can afford. Additional expenses may also be incurred for technology and books and for optional student activities such as athletics, co-curricular clubs and student programs.
