Tuition & Financial Aid

Payment plans are available.

The actual cost to educate each CRCP student is $16,000.00. Donations to CRCP by generous benefactors help bridge the gap.

Cardinal Ritter has two rates of tuition. The Catholic rate is applied to those students who are baptized Catholic or who have attended a Catholic elementary school and have completed the eighth grade from a Catholic school. All other students pay the non-Catholic rate. Tuition payments begin in July and end in May.


Cardinal Ritter College Prep meets its financial obligations through student tuition and financial support from private donors. Annually, it cost about $16,000.00 to educate a student at Cardinal Ritter College Prep. Each student attending Cardinal Ritter College Prep attends with a significant reduction in tuition. Currently, parents pay $8,033.00 (for Catholic students or a student who graduates from a Catholic school) or $8843.00 (for a non-Catholic student) a year in tuition; making Cardinal Ritter College Prep one the most affordable college prep institutions in the metropolitan region. Annually, families can anticipate a 3%-7% increase over the previous year’s tuition. Tuition does not include registration fee; cost for uniforms; textbooks; field-trips/retreats and other incidentals. These are all costs that the family must incur in addition to paying tuition. All CRCP applicants must complete FACTS. We use FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment service to help evaluate the needs of our families. In order to process your application, FACTS must receive a $30 non-refundable application fee. In addition, tax documents are required to substantiate your financial aid application and must be submitted to FACTS.
