SCA administers the HSPT (high school placement test) for all current eighth grade students and applicants. Results are used for academic scholarships and placement decisions.
In the spirit of enhancing clarity regarding the true expenses of a St. Catherine education, we are proud to introduce an all-inclusive academic tuition framework. This innovative structure promises greater transparency in understanding the investment required for your child's enrollment at SCA.
For the 2023-2024 school year, the tuition at St. Catherine Academy is set at $14,750.
What does that include?
Encompassing a comprehensive spectrum of educational facets, our academic, all-inclusive tuition encompasses:
- All necessary academic books, workbooks, and novels
- Class-related fees, including those for AP tests, academic courses, art, STEM, and more
- Contributions towards Student Life initiatives, such as Class T-Shirts, Class Yearbooks, and Parking Fees
- Unrestricted access to our Resource Center
The tuition tier empowers us to sustain our commitment to delivering an exceptional standard of education for your daughters. Our dedication to small class sizes, a favorable student-to-teacher ratio, and personalized instruction reinforces St. Catherine of Siena Academy as a beacon of value within Catholic Education.
The Scholarship Committee makes academic scholarships available to all incoming freshmen. Scholarships are not based on financial need — candidates are awarded academic scholarships based on their HSPT score. Scholarships do not require a separate application, are renewable each year, and are based on current academic performance.
Essay scholarships are awarded once for incoming freshman and are not renewable. Essays are due by the second Friday in January of your student’s eighth-grade year.
Award letters are mailed to selected candidates with their St. Catherine Academy acceptance letters.

SCA understands and appreciates the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. And although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of the family, St. Catherine Academy and the Archdiocese of Detroit devote significant funds each year to assist families in bridging the gap between what a family can afford and what it costs to attend St. Catherine Academy. Every effort will be made to award some tuition support to eligible candidates. Students may be eligible for a grant each of their four years at St. Catherine Academy; however, families must apply each year. Awards are not automatically renewed.
