Financial Aid Overview
Bishop Chatard is an open-enrollment school committed to the Catholic mission of providing education to as many students as resources allow. All students, because they are made in the image and likeness of God, have infinite value and deserve a Bishop Chatard education.
While all Bishop Chatard families will pay some level of tuition, we are committed to working with any family who desires a Catholic education for their children. During the 2017-2018 school year, 47 percent of our students received some form of financial aid.
