The cost to educate each student is over $4,200 per year. But most pay far less. This is made possible through the generous support of our area parishes and many other benefactors. But our own families help keep OLH affordable by participating in many programs that keep tuition low.
Below please find BOTH fundraising opportunities in which our school participates. Funds raised through these programs to to cover the operating costs of the school not covered by tuition. These are no-impact programs that take advantage of “free money” from major companies. Programs like SCRIP, Amazon Smiles and BoxTops generate money for the school with cash back rewards for shopping.

With your help, we can offer families financial assistance in addition to other scholarships. We can also offer families emergency tuition assistance on a case-by-case basis.
