Affording CM

Catholic Memorial’s academic and extracurricular programs are designed to provide boys with a rigorous academic experience, inspirational mentorship, and a robust extracurricular program that fosters character and leadership.

The cost to educate a Catholic Memorial student far exceeds the tuition price charged to families. The difference between the actual cost of a Catholic Memorial education and the tuition is subsidized by gifts and donations to the Annual Fund. At CM, we understand the commitment and sacrifice to offer your son a Catholic education. CM is committed to making our education affordable for our families.

CM also provides additional tuition assistance through academic merit scholarships, financial aid, and endowed scholarships. During the admissions process, each applicant is considered for a merit scholarship. Families may apply for financial aid each year by completing the Blackbaud Financial Aid application, formerly known as Smart Aid. Catholic Memorial uses Blackbaud Financial Aid Managment to compile and verify family information.

A CM education is one-of-a-kind, but as a school we remain committed to being accessible for families in the Greater Boston area.
