As a Franciscan school, a governing principle of Archbishop Curley High School is the desire to provide a quality Catholic education to young men of all backgrounds. While Curley seeks to provide tuition aid to qualified students, families must be prepared to pay the annually stated tuition. To afford a Catholic, private-school education at Curley may require families to make an adjustment to their personal life.
Funds for all merit and financial aid grants are drawn from non-operating capital, fund-raising events and gifts or endowments established by benefactors of the school. Curley’s Financial Assistance Committee meets to review all accepted applicant files. These awards, distributed in various amounts, are based on academic excellence and outstanding talents, as well as financial need.
