Admission & Financial Aid

Cost, Aid & Scholarships


Even though families recognize the value of the high quality educational experience we offer, many students tell us they didn’t consider private school because of the price. If this is what you and your family are thinking we urge you to think again.

Lifetime Investment

In our most recent survey, 95 percent of 2018 graduates reported they were professionally employed, pursuing a graduate degree or in a full-time volunteer position within a year of earning their degree. Our graduates’ CSB+SJU experience prepared them not only for their first job, it prepared them for life. You can bank on that.  Search our graduate database for yourself.
