Tuition & Tuition Assistance





At DB, it costs approximately $14,500 to educate one student. Thanks to our generous and philanthropic donors, including many alumni who believe in our mission, we are able to generate an annual operating budget that allows us to charge less than that per student. We understand the extreme value of this education, and we work very hard to keep it affordable for our families. We are proud to offer scholarships, tuition assistance, and creative payment plans for our families which keeps the desirable Catholic education affordable, achievable, and available for a larger number of students.

All families must use the FACTS Automatic Withdrawal System unless tuition is paid in full or a special payment plan has been pre-approved by the DB administration. Families may choose to use an annual, semester, quarterly, or monthly payment plan. Any grant or scholarship will be applied to tuition and payments will be adjusted.


Families who pay tuition in full by July 1st will receive a 3% discount. The 3% early pay discount for annual payments will be computed after all discounts, scholarships, and grants have been deducted and the discount does not apply to the student fees. 


Monthly payment plans include 11 monthly payments for underclassmen and 10 monthly payments for seniors. The first monthly payment is due in July.




In order to receive tuition assistance from Bishop DuBourg High School and from the Archdiocese, families must complete a Today and Tomorrow Educational Foundation (TTEF) Application. TTEF online scholarship application will open for the 2019-2020 school year on January 28, 2019. We are encouraging all families to apply by February 28, 2019. Tuition assistance will be awarded by the Archdiocese and Bishop DuBourg High School in early June. The various types of tuition assistance are listed below.


Family Scholarships - These scholarships are available during those years in which two or more students from a family are enrolled in Archdiocesan High Schools. If all students attend Bishop DuBourg High School the second student discount is $3000 and the third student is free. If different Archdiocesan High Schools are attended, the second child discount is $400 and the third is $1200.


Presidential Scholarships - Bishop DuBourg designates 10 incoming freshmen each year who receive a $1,500 scholarship for excellence in academics, faith and service, leadership and extracurricular activities. This scholarship follows the student all four years, provided he or she strives to be a leader in these areas.


Beyond Sunday Fellows Program - This program is administered by the Roman Catholic Foundation of Eastern Missouri. Students who receive assistance from the Beyond Sunday Fellows Program will earn twice as much money if the student attends an Archdiocesan High School (such as DB) compared to a private high school. Deadline is February 28th.

Work Study - Each year 12-15 students work before or after school as part of the Work Study Crew.  The amount a student earns is used to offset tuition – up to $1,000 may be earned in the course of a year. Applications for Work Study are available in late August.


Parish Employee Endowment Fund (PEEP) - Employee must work 1,000 hours in the course of a year in order to be eligible.

In the 2015-16 school year, the Gosser family had FIVE of their EIGHT children enrolled at DB at the same time. With the Family Scholarship, their five children attended DB for around $17,000 TOTAL!
Do you think twins Ryan and Ronnie Warren had to fight over who would be the one to get the $3,000 off tuition, or if they played nice and split it?
