Tuition Assistance

Maryvale is well aware that for some families the tuition rates can be prohibitive – often for the very families who need the program the most. For this reason, in accordance with the Daughters of Charity’s Values of Compassionate Service and Advocacy for the Poor, Maryvale has established a Tuition Assistance Program and a private scholarship program.

If you need assistance in paying tuition, we strongly encourage you to apply for our Tuition Assistance Program. All families will be asked to submit an application and supporting documents to the Early Childhood Education Bookkeeper for consideration.
