Tuition Assistance & Scholarships

 

Marian High School desires for every student to have the opportunity to receive a well-rounded Catholic education. We are committed to assisting families to provide a Marian education for their student(s). Marian offers awards in the form of tuition assistance and scholarships which are not required to be repaid.
