Tuition & Scholarships
The Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon and the faculty and staff of Valley Catholic School, in partnership with our parents, provide excellent, affordable Catholic values-based education to students in the Portland metropolitan area.
Valley Catholic High School spends $16,595 on each student in grades 9-12. This figure is called the “True Cost of Education.” Tuition pays just a portion of that amount. To help bridge the GAP between tuition and the true cost of education, we ask families to make a tax-deductible donation and to support the Valley Catholic Gala.
For 2016-2017, the following rates will apply.
Please remember that to judge a school’s cost accurately, parents must consider not only tuition but also fees, which can add up quickly. Many private schools charge additional fees not only for activities but also for classes—and not only for optional classes but even for required ones. These fees can be difficult to find on school Web sites; costs, therefore, may be much greater than families expect.
Valley Catholic charges almost no extra fees beyond tuition.
The $300 registration fee is the only fee required of all students. The only other fees are a graduation fee for seniors and an $100 athletic fee per sport, paid only by those who play. There are no other extra fees for any class or activity. Students do purchase textbooks for most classes. Valley Catholic tries very hard to keep its costs as reasonable as possible.
