Saint Ignatius High School

Financial Information & Tuition Assistance

Our goal is to keep a Saint Ignatius education accessible regardless of a family’s financial background.

The benefactors of Saint Ignatius allow me to have the honor of attending this school and the alumni show me what comes of people who graduate from the school. Saint Ignatius sends out Men for Others and forms men who give back.

For more than half of the students who walk our halls, the transformational experience of a Saint Ignatius education would be only a dream were it not for the generosity of alumni, parents and friends. Through the Annual Fund, Ohio Department of Education Scholarship Programs, and Merit or Endowed Scholarships, we are able to provide students of all backgrounds and situations who wish to attend our school the opportunity to do so. Payment plans are available for families in order to provide the most flexibility possible. We encourage you to view our Frequently Asked Questions document to learn more.

Saint Ignatius High School participates in the Cleveland Scholarship ProgramEdChoice Scholarship Program, and EdChoice Expansion Scholarship Program.
