Tuition and Fees


At Detroit Cristo Rey, there is an out-of-pocket cost to every family.  We work with every family to find a level that each can reasonably afford, based upon your financial evaluation during the Admissions process.

Detroit Cristo Rey works with a company called Smart Tuition to manage tuition payments.    We offer convenient, manageable payment plans that allow you to pay tuition in installments, rather than one lump sum.  Your payments can be made all at once, monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually.  Under special circumstances, we can offer additional payment plans that may work better for you as well.    Enrolling in Smart Tuition provides convenience and many different payment method options.  You can manage your account and make payments all online, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, you can enroll in auto pay or choose to be billed directly.  You can also contact their Customer Service Center at: 888-868-8828.

Please proceed to the Smart Tuition website via the following link to get enrolled in the system:

 Accounts with late payments will be assessed a late fee.  If you have any issues making a payment, or need to discuss changing your payment or tuition terms, please contact the business office BEFORE the payment is due. 

You can contact Ms. Lori  Kuhn or Ms. Areli Garcia in the Business Office at 313-843-2747.  The Business Office is open Monday-Friday from 7:45-4:30 or other times by appointment.

Other Fees

Your student’s account may be assessed other fees throughout the year.  These may include the following:

  • Lunch Fees
  • Missed Work Day Fees
  • Late Fees (when a student arrives late on a Work Day and the school has to arrange special transportation to get him/her to their work site)
  • Other Incidental Fees

All non-tuition fees will be billed monthly by the school and sent directly to the student’s address on file.  These fees are in addition to tuition, but are payable directly to the school and can be made in cash, credit card, money order, or check.
