Invest in Kids Act

In the winter of 2017, the Illinois General Assembly passed the Invest in Kids Act and created a new state tax-credit scholarship program that may allow us to access more resources for our students.  Additional information about the mechanics of the new Illinois tax-credit scholarship program can be found at

Below, we have included information about our fees, tuition and scholarships. Upon acceptance to Chicago Jesuit Academy, all students are granted a full scholarship to cover the cost of tuition. This has always been our commitment and is not changing.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact Mr. Ben Klooster at (773) 638-6103.


Families are asked to contribute to their son’s education by paying school fees.  The median parent contribution is $180.00 per year.  This accounts for less than 1% of the $25,000 that it costs CJA to educate each student each year.  To determine your school fees based on your income and family size, click here.

Tuition 2018-2019

Grades 3-8: $25,000

To be considered for admission, a young man must qualify for the National School Lunch Program’s free or reduced-price lunch or not otherwise be able to afford a private, college prep education. If you are interested in becoming a scholarship benefactor, please visit our Support Us page.
