What is the "Gap"?

Did you know that tuition covers only 80% of the cost to educate each student? The remainder is funded by parishes and the We Are Maroons Annual Appeal which covers the per student "gap." As part of the school's mission, Dowling Catholic is committed to making a Catholic education accessible to all, regardless of financial circumstances.

The "gap" amount for the 2021-2022 school year is $2,710.
