The tuition at Hayden Catholic High School represents a significant investment that pays a substantial dividend as showcased by the tremendous success of Hayden graduates. Part of our responsibility as a school is to be transparent with the true costs of that investment. The true cost to educate a student at Hayden is $13,500 for the 2024-2025 school year. Due to the generosity of donors and through the financial support of Hayden Catholic High School by the parishes of the Topeka Region of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas we are able to provide a Hayden education at a significantly reduced rate to all students. In addition, students from families who are members of a Topeka Catholic Parish qualify for a further reduction in tuition. Local students may also take advantage of tuition assistance and scholarships from Hayden Catholic High School and the Hayden Foundation. Students of other faiths are welcomed at Hayden and pay a tuition rate that does not reflect the subsidy provided by the Topeka Region Catholic parishes.

The parent commitment requirement is 40 hours within pre-approved service/fundraising activities. Completion of this requirement reduces the overall cost of tuition by $800 and is already factored into the tuition costs listed below (meaning, the rates below reflect the $800 reduction). There are additional discounts ($500 second child/$1500 third or more child) available for families with more than one child at Hayden.

Hayden Catholic High School strives to make a Catholic secondary education available to all interested students. If you have questions regarding Tuition or Financial Assistance please see the Financial Aid page, or contact the business office at or 785-272-5210, ext 104.

Tuition Down Payment

All students are required to pay a non-refundable enrollment down payment of $200, which also serves as the initial tuition payment for the designated school year. The tuition includes most all charges, including textbook rental, technology and software fees and a student activity card.

College Classes - Students enrolled in college credit classes are required to pay college fees and tuition for the course. These costs are at a reduced amount of normal costs per credit hour. Cost will vary by university, course selection, and number of credit hours granted.
