All gifts to the Jesuit High School Annual Fund go immediately to the school's most pressing needs and benefit our current students in all aspects of their educational experience. In addition to providing resources for academic, technological and athletic support, Annual Fund gifts also help to ensure that the necessary funds are available to provide tuition assistance to our students from families with documented needs.
The Hartnett Golf Classic was created strictly to support the school's Financial Aid Endowment. This is terrific and should continue, but does not provide the annual operating support for other academic or campus needs. The Gaudiosa gala has become a tremendous event over the past decade and will continue to be an important fundraiser for the school. However, because of its limited scope, it cannot be the financial base upon which Jesuit thrives. The Annual Fund serves as the primary way in which all our families can support the school.
If Jesuit were to charge the true cost to attend, it would price many students out of being able to experience a Jesuit education. The Jesuit philosophy of ensuring an affordable, Catholic, Jesuit education for all academically qualified students is crucial to the school’s identity. Minimizing the annual rate of tuition makes the mission of Jesuit High School more attainable for all who qualify. This is why we encourage all financially capable families to help us offset this tuition gap by opting to pay the “full tuition.”
The 2018-19 tuition is $16,200. The actual cost for each Jesuit student is closer to $18,200, leaving a $2,000 per student budget shortfall or "gap."

For the 2018-19 school year alone, nearly $1.94 million in tuition assistance has been committed to more than 27% of our current student body with documented financial need.
Jesuit, like many non-profit institutions, has established gift club levels to assist the school's leading benefactors in setting an example to encourage other financially capable supporters. By recognizing high-level donors through the gift clubs, Jesuit hopes the example of generosity, good stewardship, and commitment will inspire others to respond in kind.
