Financial Aid & Scholarships

The tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year is $15,600; it is paid over ten months, beginning in July and ending in April through the FACTS Tuition Management Plan. This plan is an automatic payment plan made through your checking or statement savings account. Those choosing this plan will authorize their financial institution to make automatic monthly payments to FACTS on a designated day each month.  FACTS payments may also be made by credit card, for a fee.
Inasmuch as FACTS does all the bookkeeping for the school, the only other alternative is making payment in full by July 1st.  In this case, families are entitled to a $300 tuition discount, provided they are not receiving any other form of tuition reduction (ie, scholarship or financial aid).
  • Incoming freshmen pay a one-time registration deposit of $850 that is non-refundable and is credited towards tuition.
  • All freshmen pay a $700 ebook/technology fee, which includes books, online access to all classroom materials, and each student’s Chromebook with insurance coverage for 4 years.  
  • All sophomores, juniors, and seniors pay a $200 ebook/technology fee, which includes books and online access to all classroom materials.
  • Transfer students pay a $300 registration fee and a $700 ebook/technology fee, which includes books, online access to all classroom materials, and each student’s Chromebook with insurance coverage.  Additionally, all transfer students pay the first month's tuition before the student begins classes.
  • All seniors pay a $400 graduation fee, which includes each student's cap and gown, diploma and cover, graduation announcements, yearbook, and all of the other costs associated with the Baccalaureate Mass and Graduation. 
  • There are participation fees of varying amounts for athletics, performing arts, and extracurricular activities.

The Archdiocese of Newark awards educational grants to some students on the basis of financial need through a program called “The Scholarship Fund for Inner City Children”.  Interested families should submit their financial aid applications by April 30, 2020. Information and instructions can be found on the Archdiocese of Newark Schools website (  Additionally, students may qualify for assistance from the Tri-County Scholarship Fund, which provides assistance, based solely on financial need, to students in Morris, Passaic and Sussex counties in New Jersey.  The application deadline is February 15, 2020.  Information and instructions can be found at

St. Joseph Regional High School provides a limited amount of financial assistance to students who demonstrate serious financial need. Such grants are offered in the form of tuition discounts and do not require repayment.  Families can apply online by visiting SJR’s FACTS Information Page under the Admissions tab.  When the applications are completed and evaluated by FACTS, the school will allocate the resources that it has available as fairly and equitably as possible. Under no circumstances will the school extend financial assistance to a student whose family has not completed a financial aid application.


All applications for returning families (Classes of 2021, 2022 and 2023) must be submitted by April 1, 2020, using their 2019 tax information.   Families must submit a new application to FACTS each year.



Saint Joseph Regional High School offers academic scholarships to top incoming freshmen. To be eligible for an academic scholarship, the student must have taken the High School Placement Test (HSPT), and have identified St. Joseph Regional as their first choice school. Academic scholarships are awarded in the form of full and partial tuition scholarships.  Students receiving such grants will be notified of their scholarship with their acceptance packet. 


HSPT scores alone do not guarantee that a student will be offered a scholarship.  The Admissions Committee also considers middle school grades and standardized test scores, comments about a student’s conduct and effort in middle school.  All academic scholarships are renewable from year to year, provided the student continues to achieve superior grades and demonstrate exemplary conduct at St. Joseph Regional.

Four special scholarships are presented annually to incoming freshmen.  All of the scholarship opportunities listed below are awarded on the basis of both need and merit. Completed financial aid forms are used to identify the families of students with serious financial need. Academic records and test scores, letters of recommendation and other material from the student’s application assist in identifying students whose accomplishments merit consideration from the various scholarship committees.  All 2020 SJR Scholarship Applications are linked below.
