Central Catholic Announces 2018-2019 Tuition,
Committed to Providing World-Class Education at Highest Value
Prudent management of the school’s finances, as well as growing our non-tuition revenue, permits Central Catholic to maintain one of the lowest tuition rates among private and Catholic secondary schools in the region.
While most private and Catholic secondary schools are increasing tuition for 2018-2019 in a range of between 5% and 9%, Central Catholic’s tuition represents an increase of just 2.9% over the 2017-2018 tuition rate.
School leadership is driven by one vision - to make Central Catholic more excellent in its offerings to students with each new school year.
Our efficiency with making this vision real enables Central Catholic to provide a world-class education at undoubtedly the best value in New England.
Central Catholic High School offers financial assistance to students whose families demonstrate significant financial need.
Priority deadline for current students: March 23, 2018
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.
The Result: A World-Class Education
Our teachers are distinguished by their knowledge, passion, skill, and daily commitment to excellence, working personally with each student, caring deeply and believing in the success of each one.
These opportunities give every student a safe place to reach beyond their comfort zone to become a young adult with unlimited promise, 100% of whom are admitted to collegiate study at top colleges across the country and internationally, most with scholarships that make dreams affordable.
Central Catholic is a welcoming, respectful and safe environment where students are encouraged to be and discover themselves, not just become a reflection of what is popular in society at the moment. The Gospel values of love for one another and compassion for others is the foundation of Central’s family spirit.
Individually tailored to meet students at the appropriate levels of challenge to develop their God-given, diverse gifts to the fullest.
