Tuition & Fees

St. John's Northwestern Academies provides a variety of enrollment & financial aid options to help you make the choice that's perfect for your family.


Invest for the Future

We believe all young men and women deserve an exceptional education to maximize their potential. Financing a SJNA education is a major investment in your child’s future. Parents choose SJNA because of its academic and signature programs, diverse community, personalized attention with small class sizes, and superior faculty and coaches.

SJNA recognizes that every family’s financial picture looks different, and we are committed to providing a thorough review of every applicant’s individual circumstances. Financial aid is awarded to eligible students based on need and availability of funds. It is SJNA’s expectation that families contribute to the cost of their child’s education at the highest level they are able.
