Catholic Central – An Education Worth Investing In.
Catholic Central is committed to making Catholic education accessible to families from a range of economic backgrounds. We recognize that paying tuition is a considerable investment for most families. That is why we believe that tuition should not be a “one-size fits all” model or a reason why students cannot attend Catholic Central. We are proud to offer Variable Tuition.
Variable Tuition for the 2024-25 School Year
- Who can apply: Any family who is interested in Catholic Central’s Variable Tuition for the 2024-25 school year
- Application Open: October 15, 2023
- Application Priority Deadline: December 1, 2023
What is Variable Tuition?
Variable Tuition allows families to apply for a reduced tuition rate that is based on their family’s unique financial situation. While every family is expected to contribute to the cost of tuition and to support Catholic Central High School in some way, the Variable Tuition program offers families an appropriate tuition level, making an excellent Catholic education accessible for more families within our community.
By making a Catholic Central High School education more financially possible, we will have the opportunity to fully utilize our exceptional staff and outstanding facilities and bring a rich diversity of students and families to our schools.
Any family may apply for Variable Tuition. Many factors are considered when determining the tuition amount a family is able to pay, including income, assets, unusual expenses, and the size of the family and are reviewed by a third party company. A recommendation is then sent to our staff for review.
