FINANCIAL AID/SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION

2016 -2017 

Marquette Catholic High School offers families that qualify assistance from the the St. Francis Fund.   This fund is established to help parents who have chosen a Catholic education for their children, and have an obligation to finance that education to the best of their ability. There are also a variety of individual scholarships available.

The St. Francis Fund is administered on a direct grant basis and those funds awarded are automatically renewable; applications do not need to be completed each year. Grants awarded apply only to tuition (not fees or books). Grant award amounts vary according to family need, but generally do not exceed one-half of tuition costs. Grants can be awarded to several members of the same family; one application form includes all of the family’s MCHS students. In accordance with Illinois High School Association regulations, no grants are awarded on the basis of athletic ability.
