Annual Fund

As a private, independent, Catholic school, Jesuit High School does not receive financial support from the Diocese of St. Petersburg or from the Central and Southern Province (of the Jesuit Order). Jesuit is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization entirely dependent on revenue from tuition and the generosity of its benefactors. As such, the Annual Fund is critical to the fiscal health of Jesuit High School.

Jesuit's tuition is well below the actual cost to educate each student. Through the generosity of Jesuit’s Annual Fund donors, we are able to make up that tuition shortfall, as well as meet the ongoing challenges of operational and facility maintenance costs. Jesuit is also dependent on the Annual Fund to provide a robust financial aid program, while minimizing annual tuition increases for all families. For the 2023-24 school year alone, we have committed more than $2,400,000 in financial aid to 33% of our student body. The average award per student is $8,552. Ultimately, it is your generosity that allows the school to continue its legacy of developing "Men for Others."
