At Joliet Catholic Academy, we strive to provide a quality Catholic education. Tuition and fees cover only a portion of what it costs to educate a student.  Detailed information on tuition and fees can be found in JCA’s Parent-Student Handbook.

JCA strives to keep the tuition rate as competitive as possible through the generosity of our alumni, friends, and sound financial management. We feel strongly that the education we provide, the values we teach, and the opportunity we offer for individual attention and participation is invaluable.

It is our belief that finances should not be the sole factor in determining whether or not a student has the opportunity to attend Joliet Catholic Academy. We feel strongly that the education we deliver, the values we teach and the opportunity we offer for individual attention and participation should be available to all students. Finances should not prevent any student from the benefits of a Catholic education.

A Catholic education is an investment for a lifetime.
