Tuition & Fees

2020 – 2021 Tuition & FeesDeSales High School Tuition and Fees
Tuition: $14,594
Instructional Fee: $500
Non-Refundable Deposit: $75
Based on this schedule, the total cost of a DeSales education for the 2020-21 school year is $15,169. This total includes the cost of apps and an iPad, which is retained by the student upon graduation. With the exception of the non-refundable deposit, this total cost may be divided into equal payments over the whole year. This option helps relieve the burden of having to make large payments at the same time that other fees come due.
The school requires a $75 non-refundable deposit (as listed above in the Tuition Breakdown) that must accompany applications for enrollment or re-enrollment. The school will not consider a student to be enrolled until all forms within the application for enrollment or re-enrollment are complete and the deposit has been received.
Student Fees
The school's tuition covers the cost of locker rental, administrative record-keeping, iPad/laptop usage, and standardized testing. Some additional fees are assessed for items such as parking permits, admittance to social and extracurricular events, school lunches, field trips, Immersion Week activities, participation in sports and retreats, and Advanced Placement (AP) classes.

Payment Plans

  • Single Payment Plan – This plan requires payment made-in-full on or before July 1 of each year. Families who choose this option make their one-time payment directly to the school and receive a discount if the payment is received in the school office no later than July 1.
  • Monthly Payment Plan – This plan requires payment to be made in 11 installments, beginning in July and completing in May of the following year. The school utilizes an automatic withdrawal payment plan that may deduct from either a checking or savings account. The monthly payment plan requires that the family sign a Payment Debit Authorization Form. The school assesses an annual fee for this service and automatically withdraws the fee directly from the designated checking or savings account.
Non-Parish Assessment
The school is required by the Archdiocese of Louisville to assess a non-parish fee of $50.00 for any student whose family is not a registered and contributing member of an Archdiocese of Louisville parish. Please note that we do not seek this information or make this determination but rather, it is a matter administered by the Diocese.
