Hayden Catholic High School is supported financially by the parishes of the Topeka Region of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.  Students from families who are members of a Topeka Catholic Parish qualify for reduced Tuition.  Local students also may take advantage of support from the Hayden Catholic High School Foundation and the PACE (Parent and Alumni for Catholic Education) Organization.

Students of other faiths are welcomed at Hayden and pay non-parish tuition.  The PACE requirement is a 40 hour parent commitment in PACE related service/fundraising activities. 

There are additional discounts ($500 second child/$1500 third or more child) available for families with more than one child at Hayden Catholic.

Hayden Catholic High School wishes to make a Catholic secondary education available to all interested students. If you have questions regarding Tuition or Financial Assistance (see Admissions tab-Scholarships/Financial Assistance) please contact Hayden Catholic High School President, Matthew Schambari (785.272.5210 ext. 111).
