Tuition & Fees

An affordable, classical education is paramount to our mission at Chesterton Academy of Buffalo.  Doing much with little is an integral pillar upon which our school was founded.  We continue to work tirelessly to provide a superior education to our students and are proud to announce that our tuition is half of what most area Catholic and private schools charge annually.  We also recognize that while our tuition is affordable for many, there remains a need for Tuition Assistance and Financial Aid for some. 

  • Tuition for 2019-2020: $6,925 per student annually. A generous Sibling Discount for families with more than one student attending Chesterton is also available.

  • Activity Fee for 2019-2020: $210 per student annually. This encompasses Lab, Art, HardCover Books, House Activity, and misc. fees.

Financial Aid/T.A.D.S.

Financial assistance is available for families based on need.  We utilize T.A.D.S. for both financial aid assessment and tuition management.  To get your application started click the icon below.
