Tuition & Financial Aid
Sending your child to Bishop O’Connell High School is a significant commitment for families. At the heart of Bishop O’Connell's mission is the commitment to provide a Catholic, college preparatory education to young men and women of all economic backgrounds.
Financial Aid falls under two categories: merit (based on a student's academic performance) and need (based on the student's family's financial situation). Eligible students may receive both merit- and need-based assistance. For the 2019-2020 school year $2.2 million dollars in assistance was awarded.
Students who exhibit achievement both inside and outside of the classroom are recognized by our scholarship program. These awards are based on merit; not on financial need. Visit our SCHOLARSHIPS PAGE for more information.
Choosing to attend O'Connell was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I largely owe my success to the consistent support and dedication of my teachers and counselors, as well as the numerous opportunities O'Connell has afforded me. During my time at O'Connell, I have grown intellectually and spiritually, I have been challenged, and I have been part of a happy and spirited community.
