The tuition rates for the 2018-2019 school year are listed below.  Each year, the tuition rates are determined by the Board of Governors. The 2019-2020 school year rates will be determined in February 2019, and a moderate increase should be expected.

Tuition is paid through FACTS, an online tuition and fee management system.  FACTS accounts are setup at registration. Tuition is withdrawn from FACTS accounts in 10 monthly payments starting in May. The tuition may also be paid in full starting in May.

Academic Merit Scholarships

Bishop Ireton High School is pleased to award scholarships based on academic merit.  There is no separate application. All applicants are eligible and are considered based on their HSPT score and review of their full admissions application packet.   The scholarship is not guaranteed if a student scores at the below listed percentile, as full review of the application is required. Only a certain number are offered each year and students will be notified in their acceptance letters if they have been awarded a scholarship.  These scholarships are renewed each year as long as the student maintains their GPA and student conduct.

Financial Aid

During the 2018-2019 school year, Bishop Ireton offered over $1.7 million  of tuition assistance and scholarships to our students. In collaboration with the Diocese of Arlington, Bishop Ireton has developed a financial aid program to assist families with their commitment to educate their children in the Catholic School tradition.  

Financial Aid Applications are made through FACTS Grant and Aid. The application process includes completing the application, as well as uploading the requested tax documents. Your application is not complete until FACTS Grant and Aid has received your tax documents. Only complete applications are considered. There is a $35 application fee assessed by FACTS Grant and Aid. Applications submitted after the due date will only be considered if funds remain. Only one application is required per family and families seeking aid for students in both elementary and high school should follow the high school submission deadline.  


FACTS Grant and Aid Helpline - (866) 412-4637
 
Please note, Financial Aid awards do not carry over year over year.  A new application must be submitted each year to be considered for aid. Bishop Ireton makes individual decisions with regard to the recipients and the amount of the award

List of 2 frequently asked questions.

  • Q. Withdraw policy

    Should your student need to withdraw once enrolled at Bishop Ireton High School, email notification to Mrs. Nicole Mahon, Director of Admissions, is required and an online withdrawal form must be completed.  Please email Nicole Mahon, Director of Admissions, at Nicole.mahon@bishopireton.org.  The form will be emailed to you from the Director of Admissions. Tuition must be current and up to date before transcripts will be sent to any schools.  
  • Q. Tuition Policy

    At the beginning of each month, the full tuition for that month is due regardless of how many days the student attends during that month.  Withdrawal forms received before the 15th of the month will stop the future month's tuition payments. If the withdrawal form is received after the 15th of the month it will result in the proceeding month's tuition being due regardless of whether the student is enrolled in that month.  This notification includes summer months.

    Transcripts will not be released unless the student's tuition and fee account is current.  
    If there is a balance from the previous school year, it must be paid in full prior to the next school year in order for a student to register and attend classes.  

    The following items are non-refundable:
    • Application fee
    • Registration fees
    • Tuition deposit
    • Financial aid and scholarships
    Families who take advantage of the 10 month payment plan option will be charged a $50 fee from FACTS.  FACTS will charge a $30 fee for any returned payments (NSF).
    If tuition payment is not current by the end of the first semester, children may not return for the second semester until their tuition is brought up-to-date.

    Seniors whose tuition payments are not current will not receive their report card, final transcript or diploma.
