Find the Support You Need
We work hard to ensure the cost of tuition is not an obstacle for students who want the opportunity to thrive through a Lourdes education. As a result of the generous support of donors and supporters, we can offer a tuition rate that is less than the actual cost to educate a student.
Additionally, a range of tuition assistance and financial aid resources are available to support families who qualify. Members of parishes within the Diocese of Harrisburg are eligible to receive parish support. Plus, all students who qualify can apply for supporting financial assistance through the Simple Tuition Solutions (STS) program.
The bottom line: when Lourdes is the right fit, we work hard to make it happen and remove tuition costs as a barrier. We understand each family has unique needs related to financial aid and our team is here to offer personal support throughout the application and enrollment process. Please reach out with any questions or to start a conversation. We are here to help.
