Borgia is proud to have one of the lowest tuitions in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.  We continue to offer high-quality Catholic education for less than other Catholic schools. We know tuition can be a struggle for many, so we partner with families who seek assistance.  Currently, over 60% of our students receive some sort of assistance.  Please view the different avenues of assistance we offer.
