The Detroit Catholic Central High School Board of Directors has approved a minimal tuition increase of $275 (only 1.75%) for the 2024-2025 school year, bringing the total to $15,975 and marking the lowest price increase in seven years.
According to the U.S. News & World Report, the national average for private secondary schools in 2023 was $16,645.
Private schools are not immune to inflation. Tuition naturally increases year over year.
However, President Ed Turek has stated that tuition will not increase because of the new campus developments, as they are funded by private donors.
In addition to slowing the rise of tuition, Catholic Central continues to increase the amount of need-based tuition assistance offered. The school has budgeted more than $2.6 million in assistance for the 2024-2025 school year.
The minimal price increase is even more impressive considering the major campus developments Catholic Central has recently announced, spiking rumors of a potential drastic increase in tuition rate to accommodate the building improvements.
Catholic Central is committed to raising funds for three reasons: faculty support, facility expansion, and tuition assistance. Keeping the cost of tuition as low as possible goes hand in hand with this effort.
To date, the school has been successful in keeping tuition rates affordable while providing students with university-level accommodations, including the George and Mary Turek Hall of Science opening in 2024.
