  • Monthly payments beginning in July through FACTS automatic deduction for a ten-month period.

Financial Aid

Last year, Xavier High School offered nearly $1,000,000 in tuition assistance. For those interested in applying for tuition assistance for the 2019-2020 school year, you can do so by completing the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment beginning October 2018. All applications must be complete by December 31, 2018.

All financial aid and scholarship awards are deducted from the family's account.

Parents who are experiencing temporary financial difficulties may contact the Headmaster to discuss special arrangements.

Sibling Discounts

  • 2nd Child at Xavier or Mercy – deduct $1,000
  • 3rd Child at Xavier or Mercy – deduct $1,000
  • 4th Child at Xavier or Mercy – Free
  • Sibling discounts only apply to the youngest child at Mercy or Xavier.
  • Either the Catholic School Discount or Sibling Discount apply (not both).


Xavier has a variety of scholarships awarded to freshman applicants. More details can be found here.

Catholic Middle School Discount

Any student who matriculates directly from a Catholic K-8 school will receive a $1,000 discount each year they are enrolled at Xavier. In the event a student has a sibling attending Mercy/Xavier and applies from a Catholic K-8 school, the Catholic School discount applies and not the Sibling Discount. This is so the family will receive this for all four years a student is at Xavier.

CHET (529 Savings Program)

As of January 1, 2018, the Connecticut Higher Education Trust (CHET) allows up to $10,000 per year, per student, to be withdrawn - free from federal tax - from a 529 plan for tuition expenses at private or religious high schools.
