Freshmen Financial Aid Application
- Make a plan for how you are going to pay. Know that your tuition and fees will not be covered in full by financial aid and or scholarships. Parents need to apply for financial aid annually and students apply for scholarships annually on or before the deadlines.
- Be sure both applications, admissions application to Central Catholic and your financial aid application to FACTS are complete and filed on time. Provide additional information as soon as it is requested. This is your responsibility. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Need-based Tuition AssistanceThe Central Catholic High School tuition assistance grant is especially designed for the most financially needy students in our school. Central Catholic has chosen to use FACTS for financial aid application processing.
The income and assets of a family are taken into account, as well as family size, extraordinary expense, number of children attending tuition charging schools (excluding colleges/universities), metropolitan area of residence, number of working parents and the value of parents’ assets. Unusual family tragedy or catastrophes, such as job loss or large medical expense are taken into account. Families that incur a large amount of “choice debt” are not rewarded for unwise financial planning.
Reports prepared by FACTS from information gathered from parents/guardians are used by the Central Catholic Financial Aid Committee to determine tuition assistance awards. Dollar amounts of awards vary, with the largest grants going to families who apply by the deadline and demonstrate the greatest need in a given school year.
