Tuition & Financial Aid

As a school of excellence, Central Catholic High School provides the best value in education available for your investment.  We understand that families are making an investment in their children’s futures and that is how we approach our mission in educating each student who has been entrusted to our care.

Tuition for the 2016-2017 school year is $13,190, which includes all academic and athletic fees.  There are a number of payment options available for managing tuition.  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.  Please contact the Office of Admissions at 978.682.0260 ext. 605 for more information.


Financial Aid and Scholarship Information
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.  Our students received more than $1.3 million in financial assistance for the 2014-2015 school year.

Families new to CCHS who are in need of financial assistance are encouraged to complete the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment form online at: https://online.factsmgt.com/signin/3H65F beginning Monday, November 9, 2015 and prior to Friday, December 11, 2015 so the school may provide financial assistance decisions with the admissions decisions in early February 2016.

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. Every attempt is made to provide ongoing assistance to returning students that demonstrate continued need.

Current CCHS families (Classes of 2017, 2018, 2019) applying or reapplying for Financial Aid must submit their applications by the end of February 2016.

A limited number of scholarships are available to students enrolling at Central Catholic as freshmen.  These scholarships are based on various criteria including academic performance, HSPT (Entrance Exam) results, need, residency, alumni affiliation and other criteria.
