Financial Aid

Tuition assistance is available to families at Archbishop Mitty High School with demonstrated financial need. Applying for tuition assistance will in no way influence the selection process for acceptance into AMHS. It is a goal of the school Administration and the Board of Regents to give all qualified students, regardless of financial resources, an opportunity to attend AMHS.

The online Financial Aid applications for the 2017-2018 school year will be available November 20, 2016, and will be due February 6, 2017. To apply for financial assistance, applicants must submit an online application. If you are awarded financial aid, you will have a work study obligation to meet that corresponds with the amount of aid you receive. In addition, all financial aid students are required to maintain a 2.5 total GPA. Failure to successfully complete either of these two requirements could terminate a financial aid award.

Tuition Fees and Policies

When a student withdraws or is dismissed from AMHS, parents are responsible for tuition for all months a student was in attendance, including partial months (1 day or more). Any paid tuition beyond the last month in attendance will be refunded.

Tuition Penalties

The payment schedule as outlined in the SMART Tuition Agreement is a binding contract and must be maintained and paid as agreed.  Late payments will be assessed a $40 fee each month until the account is current. An account that falls 60 days in arrears will result in suspension of the student, and a payment for the full amount will be required in order for the student to return to school. During this suspension, the student will not be permitted to be in contact with any teachers regarding class work and will not be able to participate in school activities. Failure to pay the tuition balance after 5 days of suspension will result in the student being dismissed from Archbishop Mitty High School.

Checks returned by the bank will be subject to a $25 charge. If two or more checks are returned for non-payment, the Business Office will request all future payments be made in the form of a cashier’s check, cash or money order.

Disciplinary Probation

If a student is placed on disciplinary probation, the student’s account must be kept current according to their payment schedule. Failure to keep the account current may result in the student being dismissed from school.

Graduation Fee

The Graduation Fee for Seniors includes the Baccalaureate Mass, Graduation, the Senior Dinner and a cap and gown for Graduation.

Student Activities Fee

The Student Activity Fee includes a AMHS yearbook, Spirit Shirt (received at beginning of year), and entrance into Monarch Madness.  

AMHS iPad AppleCare Program

Archbishop Mitty High School is pleased to provide coverage for stolen or accidentally damaged iPads with an annual $40 fee. This coverage includes a single repair for accidental damage at no additional cost. Subsequent repairs for accidental damage are subject to a $50 service fee. Stolen iPads are subject to a $100 deductible and requires the successful filing of a police report. Lost iPads will be billed the full replacement price at the time of incident. To best protect the iPad and minimize the chance of damage, proper use of the AMHS supplied iPad case and front cover is required. Coverage applies to all iPads issued after April 2015.
