Need-Based Tuition Assistance

The doors of St. Cecilia Academy are open to students and families of all socio-economic backgrounds who desire to be a part of the mission and vision of the school. We are proud of the geographic, cultural, ethnic and socioeconomic diversity of our students. Our students come from 44 different zip codes, and 37% of our students receive need-based Tuition Assistance. The St. Cecilia Academy experience is enhanced and enriched by the growing rich diversity and inclusiveness welcoming spirit of its student body, and the school tries hard to work individually with each family, regardless of financial situation.
