Tuition & Tuition Assistance Scholarships
Seattle Preparatory School is an independent Catholic Jesuit secondary school governed by a Board of Trustees comprised mostly of laypersons. It depends on tuition, fundraising, and its own resource management for its financial operation and viability. It receives no regular funding from the state or Church.
Seattle Prep is committed to providing quality Catholic education that is affordable to families. To that end, we awarded over $3.3M in financial assistance for the 2023-2024 school year. Currently, 26% of all students at Prep receive financial assistance.

Seattle Preparatory School’s policy for determining assistance is based upon the belief that all those ethically and/or legally responsible for a child’s upbringing must participate in the process. This principle applies to all parents, including those who are separated or divorced. Because of this, Seattle Prep requires parents to submit a tuition scholarship application and the corresponding backup before their child’s file can be considered for assistance. In the case of separation or divorce, each parent should submit their backup documentation and application separately. Once all files are complete, they will be evaluated to determine an “ability to pay” per family. It is the parents’ responsibility to determine the amount each parent will contribute to tuition. Non-working parents may have minimum wage imputed if all children in the home are school aged.
