Bishop Foley Catholic GAP Grant

The cost of private Catholic education is such that the tuition and fees charges do not cover the total cost of educating each student. Foley's Advancement efforts are designed to make up the difference between the actual cost of educating each student (approximately $11,275 in 2017-18) and the tuition charged of $9,500. Therefore, in accordance with our mission a BFC GAP Grant of $1,725 is made available to each student.
