CCHS is blessed to be able to offer several scholarships for our students. Recipients are determined by the Admission and Financial Aid Committee. To be considered, applicants must complete a CCHS application, required essay and the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program Application (TAP).
Families often have to weigh their options when choosing a school for their child. Providing a Catholic high school experience for your child is a commitment to and an investment. CCHS is proud to offer more than $180,000 in direct financial aid to nearly 50% of the student body. An additional $95,000 in Diocesan aid is awarded to our students. These are incredible statistics when you consider that since 2000, the amount of aid available has DOUBLED and the number of students needing assistance has TRIPLED. We make every effort to make a CCHS education affordable to families who seek to pursue it.

For the 27th consecutive year, the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is striving to keep Catholic school education affordable for Catholic families who desire it for their children but who may need some financial assistance to make that dream a reality. Thanks to the ongoing and genuine commitment of Bishop Michael J. Bransfield to the Catholic schools in our Diocese, funds have, once again, been allocated for distribution to Catholic families in need of financial assistance.
Applying for TAP through FACTS is easy and affordable. You are encouraged to apply if your child is already enrolled or has been accepted by one of the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston for the 2018-2019 school year.
Who is eligible? Any Catholic student accepted for the 2018-2019 school year in
any Diocesan Catholic school (PK thru grade 12) and who belongs to a parish included on the drop-down list as part of the on-line application is eligible. Determinations are based upon a family’s degree of need relative to all other applicants.
How do I apply? Applications are made on-line. Go to www.factsmgt.com,
click on “Grant & Aid Assessment” and log in. If you do not have Internet access, contact your school office for assistance.
Cost? The application fee is $30. The Diocese will pay $15 and families
pay the other $15.
Grants: Diocesan grants for Catholic families who have completed their
applications and show financial need will receive up to 50% of the child’s tuition.
