Tuition & Fees
As part of Archbishop Murphy High School's commitment to Catholic education and desire to help make an AMHS education accessible, each family's tuition obligation is less than the actual cost of educating their student. In addition, we provide financial awards to qualifying families in need. Every student automatically receives a Catholic education subsidy in addition to any tuition awards that may be granted.
All students who want to attend Archbishop Murphy High School should submit their applications regardless of their financial background. Opportunities for financial aid are available from both AMHS and the Archdiocese of Seattle.
Tuition Breakdown - 2016/17
Beginning the 2016-2017 school year, your tuition payment will include your student’s registration fee, building fee, and fundraising/SCRIP obligation. These fees will no longer be billed as separate payments from tuition. Fees related to a student’s participation in sports, co-curriculars and other activities will still be billed separately from tuition and will be due at the time of sign up for that specific sport or activity. This new model will allow families to spread fee payments evenly throughout their preferred tuition payment plan.
The cost to educate each student who walks through our doors is $17,345.
