Tuition & Fees

Ursuline Academy’s tuition for the 2024-2025 academic year has been set for $18,300 with a standard fee of $375 and a technology fee of $200.  Ursuline Academy students have a choice to bring their own laptop or use an Ursuline-provided laptop. Please see the 2024-2025 Technology Information Sheet for details. The laptop fee of $250 will be assessed to students choosing an Ursuline Academy-provided laptop.  As part of our Worry-Free Meal Plan with Pedestal Foods, a fee of $950.00 (approximately $5.80 per day) is set for each student.

Tuition and fees cover just 80% of the total cost to educate each Ursuline student.  The remaining gap is funded by the generous donations of current parents and other donors.  Your decision to make an additional financial commitment now allows the Academy to plan effectively and initiate projects to benefit students beginning in the fall.  Your tax-deductible contribution will be added to your tuition statement on the payment schedule that you choose.  For the 2024-2025 school year, the gap between tuition and the actual cost of an Ursuline education is $4250.  Your gift at any level will support our UA Bears directly during the 2024-2025 year and is greatly appreciated.

Tuition Assistance

We here at Ursuline Academy understand that some families are struggling financially and might be looking for assistance. We are happy to announce that we have recently been granted permission from our Board of Trustees to widen the pool of funds we allocate for financial assistance. 

This is in the hopes that more families will take into consideration an Ursuline Academy education for their daughter, easing the minds of those who might not have thought of us before, due to tuition. 

When determining Financial need, we look at many factors, not just household income. The average Financial Aid package families receive is $4,000. Some families receive more, some receive less. We never want to see a student walk away that truly wants to be here because the tuition might be a stretch for her family. Our goal is to work closely with our families to see their daughter’s dream of being a Bear come to life!

Missouri 529 MOST Accounts

Catholic school parents may benefit from recent changes to the federal tax code which allows parents to make contributions to a child’s Missouri 529 MOST account for K-12 tuition, in addition to expenses for higher education that are already permitted.

The Missouri 529 MOST account is an investment program sponsored by the Missouri State Treasurer’s office. Anyone can open a MOST account, including parents, grandparents, or friends of K-12 or college-aged students.  Interest earnings on contributions to MOST accounts are not subject to state or federal taxes. Furthermore, qualified distributions from the account (those for higher education expenses, and now K-12 tuition) are also not taxed. Parents can withdraw up to $10,000 annually for private K-12 tuition per student as an eligible distribution from a MOST account.

Funds contributed to a MOST account are deducted from the parent’s taxable income.  Reducing taxable income, in turn, will reduce the state tax bill parents pay.
