Tuition and Financial Aid
BMCHS Tuition Rates are inclusive of all books and class fees except for the
Full Tuition - $12,100.00 Discounted Catholic Tuition Rate - $8,600.00
Discounted Catholic Tuition of $8,600 is available for participating members of a local Catholic Parish. Parishes subsidize their Catholic students; if a parish cannot verify participation (i.e. provide a signed Parish Participation Form), then tuition will be set at the full rate of $12,100.00.
Catholic Tuition Rate is a discount based on each student’s participating Catholic status. Participating Catholic status is determined by the student’s local pastor and indicated by the pastor’s signature on a Parish Participation Form. Participating Catholic status is subject to periodic review by the student’s local pastor, which could result in an increase of the tuition rate charged to the student. Each local Parish Priest determines the criteria for “Participating Catholic Status” within their Parish of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City.
$150 Tuition discount when tuition is paid in full prior to June 1
Registration Fee: $400 per family, due at the time of registration. (Non-refundable after May 1)
Registration Fee after May 1 is $500
Multi- Student Discount: A $400 discount will be given to families with 2 or more students. Discounts will begin with the second student and can be taken with the Single Payment tuition option, or off of the final FACTS payment of the youngest sibling for FACTS Agreement Holders.

A FACTS Automatic Tuition Payment Agreement Plan (On-line registration) is required for all BMCHS students except those preferring a Single Payment in Full, and is expected to be on file prior to May 1, 2014.
