Tuition/Fees & Financial Assistance

Tuition and Fees 

Tuition for the 2020-21 School Year is $8,295 for students affiliated with a Partner Parish. The non-affiliated tuition rate is $10,300. Our Parishes graciously make up the difference in these two rates.

A prepayment of $300 per student is due at the time of registration.

The projected cost of educating a Central Catholic student is $11,488. This means that every Catholic student that attends CCHS receives a discount. Further discounts are available to qualifying families through financial assistance/scholarships. A quality education is an investment in your child’s future. We strive to keep the cost of this investment as low as possible for the families we serve. The difference between the actual cost and tuition is subsidized by the partner parishes and CCHS advancement efforts.

Financial Assistance/Scholarships

Central Catholic High School utilizes the services of FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment to assess financial needs of families requesting assistance. To use FACTS Management, a one-time annual $45 processing fee, per family, will be billed to your FACTS account. FACTS Management will send an initial invoice to families and allow each to pick the payment options that best suit the family. Families who choose the annual payment will not be assessed the $45 administrative FACTS fee and for those families, payment will be due in full July 1.

If financial assistance is needed, families are required to complete both the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment and consult this information from the Diocese of Peoria. Applications are to be completed by April 15. Any applications received after the due date are put on a waiting list, and will only be processed if there are funds available. FACTS analyzes the family’s size, income, assets, and the state and/or metropolitan area where the family resides to determine how much tuition the family can pay. FACTS processes this information, then sends a report to CCHS listing the families in order of need. Using this information, CCHS and the Pastors determine the amount of assistance for each family. Families will be notified as soon as the awards are finalized.

If you have any questions concerning finances at CCHS, please e-mail Jeanne in the Business Office or call 309.661.7000.
