Affording BFC

Bishop Foley Catholic High School is committed to providing a high quality education to as many students as possible at an affordable price. Our goal is that young men and women should be able to attend BFC based on their ability to learn and not on his ability to pay. We work with our families on a confidential basis to ensure that qualified students have the opportunity to attend Bishop Foley.

While we must charge tuition to provide this education, please do not let the cost deter you from exploring the opportunity of a lifetime. Bishop Foley Catholic is a non-profit institution and it receives no subsidy funding from the church or any other public source. The school is operated wholly from tuition and fundraising.

Families may explore many options for paying tuition. Financial aid forms are available once a student is admitted.

Grants

Bishop Foley Catholic GAP Grant
The cost of private Catholic education is such that the tuition and fees charged do not cover the total cost of educating each student. Bishop Foley’s Advancement efforts are designed to make up the difference between the actual cost of educating each student (approximately $12,500 in 2016-2017) and the tuition charged ($9,150).   Therefore, in accordance with our mission a BFC GAP Grant of $3,350 is made available to each student.
