Rockhurst High School is a college preparatory educational institution sponsored by the Society of Jesus. Rockhurst does not receive public or church financial support. Instead, Rockhurst's educational mission is supported by the payment of tuition by the families of our students, by annual fundraising events, and by the generosity of our many benefactors.
Tuition for the 2016-2017 academic year is $12,300 plus $1,000 for the Lunch Fee and a $200 Technology Fee, for a total of $13,500, which may be paid annually, quarterly, or in ten monthly installments. This tuition also includes a student activity fee that supports pastoral, athletic and co-curricular activities and includes the Quarry, the Rockhurst High School yearbook. In addition, families will be responsible for making sure their son has their own iPad and has purchased or rented any required textbooks that are downloaded onto the iPad.
The tuition for the upcoming year is established by the Board of Trustees each spring.
The son of an employee of a Roman Catholic grade school or high school qualifies for an automatic $750 discount. These schools must be located within the boundaries of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph or of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. These forms must be obtained from the administrator of the qualified institution.
