Bishop Dwenger High School makes every effort to keep tuition costs at the lowest possible level while providing a quality Catholic education for young men and women throughout the greater Fort Wayne area. We understand that some families may find it difficult to fully cover the cost of tuition and fees. In order to assist families in meeting the rising cost of education, Bishop Dwenger has put together a comprehensive tuition assistance program.
The tuition assistance program includes tuition grants which are a result of Diocesan support, funds from the endowment, and from our school’s major fundraiser, Saints Alive!. We also provide a number of need-based scholarships which are a result of generous benefactors, our alumni, and friends of Bishop Dwenger High School. We encourage any family who thinks they may have a financial need to apply for assistance. We also offer a payment plan in which the family may spread the tuition payments over a ten-month period of time.
Annually, Bishop Dwenger High School awards close to a million dollars in need-based aid and scholarship assistance; typically, more than half of our student body is receiving some form of tuition assistance. We encourage you to contact Bishop Dwenger High School should you have any questions about our Tuition Assistance Program.
