TUITION & FINANCIAL AID

An education at St. Michael Indian School is possible! We strive to offer families affordable tuition and financial aid packages that help defray the costs of attending our school. 

TUITION & FINANCIAL AID

St. Michael Indian School strives to offer affordable tuition for families. Working together with many scholarship organizations and benefactors, attending SMIS is a reality for students who may not otherwise be able to attend our school and obtain a Catholic college preparatory education.

Over 80% of students participate in one or more types of financial assistance. SMIS is currently the least expensive Catholic middle and high school tuition in the state of Arizona. The average cost of education per student in 201 was $5,700, and our goal is to provide an affordable and quality education to those who would excel in our school.

Multi-child family discounts listed below apply to all grades. The second eldest child discount is 10 percent, and the third eldest child discount is 15 percent. A discount of 5 percent is provided for tuition paid in full by August 15, 2019. Tuition is due on the 15th of each month from August through June and must be paid through FACTS management.
