School Tuition at Catholic Central

Jackie S classroom

For 95 years, Catholic Central has offered only the highest quality of education for area youth. Our mission is based on the principles and foundation of building values for a lifetime. Catholic Central strives to keep our school tuition increases to a minimum. Even so, we realize that paying for private education is a sacrifice. We encourage you to apply for scholarships and grants, in addition to other discounts for which you may be eligible.

The majority of the costs of operating Catholic Central School come from school tuition and fee payments. Like any business, the school depends on prompt payment of tuition and fees in order to continue providing services to the students. The following regulations are enacted in order to ensure that the financial aspects of the school are handled in a smooth and efficient fashion. When difficulties arise, please contact the Business Office before it becomes a crisis. In most cases, we can make arrangements that will help both parties achieve their goals.

Scholarships & Grants

In order to receive any type of tuition assistance from Catholic Central, you must complete the FACTS online application. If you have multiple children at Catholic Central School (Pre-K-12), you will only need to complete one FACTS application.

The majority of tuition assistance is based on qualified financial need. The Catholic Central Tuition Assistance Committee makes all final decisions regarding the amount of aid offered to each family. FACTS is a rating service that provides the school with a list of applicants ranked by financial need, along with a recommendation of tuition assistance. We use this service to ensure that private information provided remains confidential, and it allows us to fairly allocate our tuition assistance dollars based on need.

For assistance in completing the application, call the Catholic Central Business Office at 937-325-9204 ext. 114 or 119.
