A Roger Bacon education will propel your son or daughter, to use the words of our namesake Franciscan friar, Forward to Greater Things. Roger Bacon was founded with a commitment to make the beauty of a Catholic, Franciscan education accessible to those who seek it.

We do this is by keeping our tuition the lowest in the city, and by ensuring cost is never a prohibitive factor in attending Roger Bacon. We offer more than $1.5 million dollars in scholarships and financial assistance yearly to more than 90% of our student body. With an average per student tuition of just about $2,000, Roger Bacon is by far the best educational value in the area.
