There are a variety of aid options for families of freshmen entering Central Catholic. Private loans, need-based aid, and merit scholarships are all available to help families afford tuition.

Returning Students

In addition to private loans and need-based financial aid, there a number of endowed scholarships reserved for returning sophomores, juniors, and seniors. Please pay special attention to deadlines, as they are different from the freshman deadlines.

Private Loans

Extended payment plans are available from Your Tuition Solution. Plans range from 24 to 84 months and cover tuition amounts to $40,000. Interest rates are fixed so monthly payments can never increase. There is no application or origination fee and no prepayment penalty which allows parents to pay the loan off early if they prefer. Families can calculate monthly payments, learn more, or apply online at
