Tuition & Financial Aid
Tuition for 2017-2018 school year is $15,250. Different payment options are available, including a semester and ten-month payment plan. Additional expenses include a $300 non-refundable registration fee, due with enrollment contracts, and a $600 student activity fee that pays for course fees, technology fees and student passes for athletic and school events. Books, lunch, transportation, and school uniforms are additional costs.
- Tithing Catholics from the diocese of Nashville receive a $1,800 discount with a parish subsidy card (= $13,450). The Catholic parishes of the Nashville Diocese help subsidize the school, making this discount possible. Families wishing to receive the Catholic discount must submit an annual parish subsidy card for signature by the pastor by March 1, 2017. The parish then sends these cards to JPII directly.
- Families with two or more children at JPII receive a $500 discount for each additional child.
- Families paying full tuition by July 1, 2017 receive a $125 discount.
We recognize that the full cost of tuition at JPII is beyond the means of some outstanding students and families. In order to make JPII affordable to as broad a range of families as possible, the school provides assistance to students with demonstrated need. A separate application for financial aid is necessary and is reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee, which is independent of the Admissions Committee.
JPII’s admissions decisions are “need-blind”. The Admissions Committee makes acceptance decisions well before the financial aid process begins, such that aid requests are not a factor in admissions decisions. At the same time, parents must be realistic in understanding that JPII only awards partial financial assistance and that the responsibility for affording JPII rests primarily with the family.
The deadline for financial aid for 2017-2018 is February 21, 2017.

Due to the generosity of the Carell family and Monsignor William Bevington, JPII offers additional financial aid awards to deserving students. “Carell Scholars” and “Bevington Scholars” will be chosen from among the most outstanding students seeking need-based aid; no additional application steps are required.
JPII also awards a limited number of merit scholarships, independent of need, for those who are exceptional students as determined by national test scores and academic records. “JPII Scholars” must apply for this award by deadlines, and certain restrictions apply.
JPII runs buses to and from school to various locations, including Gallatin/Lebanon, Hermitage/Donelson, Downtown Nashville/West End, Bowling Green, KY and Joelton. The cost of an annual contract to ride the bus is $925, except for Bowling Green and Clarksville routes, which are $1,000.
