Tuition and Financial Aid
As a private, independent Catholic school Cathedral does not receive any financial support from the state or federal government. Every student receives a generous financial aid package made possible by the generosity of our trustees, partners, and benefactors.
Tuition & Financial Aid
The cost to educate a student at Cathedral for the 2016-2017 school year is $14,300. Thanks to philanthropy and a commitment to our mission of providing a high quality education, we work with each family to ensure that finances are not a deterrent. The following provides a brief summary of how this works:
Cost to educate a CHS Scholar: $14,300
Less Philanthropy-based assistance: ($7,800)
Your contribution: $6,500.00
Types of Financial Aid
Philanthropy-based assistance: Our donors invest in Cathedral by providing $7,800 of tuition assistance to every one of our students.
Additional financial aid: All students are eligible to apply for additional financial aid through the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Program. Aid is determined and disbursed based on financial need. Funds for this aid are also raised through our generous Cathedral donors.
Applying for Financial Aid
Needs-based financial aid awards are granted to students on an annual basis. Applicants are required to apply online via FACTS or request a financial aid application through the school. Those applying for the 2017-2018 academic year are asked to complete and submit the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment application along with supporting documentation by December 31, 2016. Cathedral utilizes FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment to verify and compile family information. Upon verification by FACTS, the CHS Financial Aid Committee reviews the results of the application. Late applications may be considered if there are available funds after the enrollment deadline.
For the convenience of our families, Cathedral offers several different payment options for tuition.
- Families may choose to pay tuition in full by August 31.
- Tuition may be paid in two payments: one half of tuition by August 31 and the remaining half by January 15.
- A monthly payment may be set up through the FACTS tuition payment plan. The FACTS plan will withdraw ten monthly payments from your checking account spread across the school year, starting in August and end in May.
If tuition is unable to be paid by the due date and alternative arrangements have not been made, the student will not be allowed to attend school until payments are made current. For students returning to Cathedral, all prior year outstanding tuition must be paid by May 20. Returning students with an outstanding tuition balance from the prior year who have not made arrangements will be unable to start the new school year.
