Central Catholic has set the 2018-2019 school tuition at $13,995, an increase of just 2.9% over the current year. Central Catholic offers a world-class education while maintaining one of the lowest tuition rates among private and Catholic secondary schools in the region through prudent management of the school’s finances.
Tuition & Financial Aid
Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $13,995, which includes academic and athletic fees.
There are a number of payment options available for managing your tuition account. Families may elect to make one payment, two separate payments or enroll in a program through Tuition Management System (TMS) where their tuition bills may be spread over 11 equal, monthly payments. International Student tuition and fees are addressed separately.
We are pleased to announce that effective for the 2019-2020 academic year, Central Catholic will be partnering with FACTS Management Company to manage the tuition payment program at Central Catholic High School, in addition to the financial aid application process.
To help families manage tuition, we offer these three different payment plan options through FACTS:
- Option A: Full installment paid by 6/15/2019
- Option B: Two installments paid by 6/15/2019 and 11/15/2019
- Option C: Eleven (11) monthly installments with payments beginning 6/15/2019
There is no fee associated with either Option A or Option B.
There is a $50 annual fee paid directly to FACTS for Option C.
Central Catholic High School offers financial assistance to students whose families demonstrate significant financial need.
Based on available funds and the number of applicants each year, Central Catholic makes every effort to provide assistance to those families who need help.
Currently, 30% of Central Catholic students receive some type of financial assistance. Central Catholic students received more than $1.5 million in financial assistance for the 2017-2018 school year.
Families in need of financial assistance are encouraged to complete the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment form online through the CCHS website, beginning Monday, November 5, 2018, and prior to Friday, December 7, 2018, so the school may provide financial assistance decisions with the admissions decisions in early February 2019.
Financial assistance decisions are made separately from the admissions process and have no impact on a student’s eligibility for admission. All families applying for financial assistance must submit their most recent tax returns with W-2s and all supporting schedules. All financial information is held in the strictest confidence by the Financial Aid Committee. Families are required to reapply for financial assistance each year; however, every attempt is made to provide ongoing assistance to returning students that demonstrate continued need.
A limited number of academic merit based scholarships are available to students enrolling at Central Catholic as freshmen. These scholarships utilize HSPT results to consider eligibility.
To complete the online application for financial aid, you will need:
- A complete copy of your 2017 tax returns (either electronic or paper versions);
- Your 2017 W2 forms;
- All supporting schedules.
You will also need to submit a payment of $35 via credit or debit card.
The Financial Aid Application is available on November 5, 2018. The Applicants who submit their financial aid application by December 7, 2018 will learn of their financial aid award with their admissions decision.
The priority filing deadline for current students for the 2019-2020 school year is in March.
