Tuition, Financial Aid & Scholarships

Supporting your Son's Esto Vir Journey

We understand that enrolling your son in a private school is a family commitment – for both the student and the parents -- and we are here to help support you as you navigate this important part of the Admissions process.

Need-Based Financial Aid

It is a critical part of our MISSION to enroll the most qualified young men regardless of their financial circumstances. Two types of financial aid awards are available: Direct Grants and Work Grants. Direct Grants are awarded based on financial need and are a direct reduction of tuition. Work Grants are awarded based on financial need and reduce tuition by the number of hours a student works for the school.

The Financial Aid Process for NEW Families

After scheduling your son’s Shadow Visit, please contact our Admissions Associate to setup a meeting either in person or on the phone to discuss the process for applying.

Additional information can be found in our comprehensive
Financial Assistance Guide.

(Note: There is no additional application for these scholarships; academic transcripts will provide sufficient information.)
