Financial Assistance Information

Cathedral Catholic High School is committed to ensuring the socio-economic diversity of our community by providing approximately 30% of our students some level of financial aid for tuition, fees, materials, or activities. For those who find themselves unable to pay the full tuition rate we may be able to provide a discount through financial assistance. Our Financial Aid Grants are need based, and a family’s request for Financial Aid is considered independent of the admission and enrollment process.

Cathedral Catholic High School uses an organization called Financial Aid Independent Review, Inc. (FAIR) to help interpret financial information.

Students who are interested in applying for tuition assistance may submit an application AT ANY TIME. Please note that Fair applications submitted after the February 15 deadline may not be funded due to a limit on available funds which are primarily distributed prior to the April 8 registration deadline.

To learn more about FAIR please consult their website: In order to submit an application, please enter our school code of 118 and password, which is cchs118 on the FAIR website.
