Financial Aid

Central Catholic High School strives to make our Catholic high school education affordable for our families. Through the generosity of our families, donors and parish communities we raise funds that keep our tuition costs reasonable while providing all of our students a transformational education with a qualified, caring faculty and staff, within a state-of-the-art facility.

A quality education is an investment in your child’s future.  The actual cost of educating a Central Catholic student is $10,795.00 per student. This means that every student that attends CCHS receives financial assistance. The difference between the actual cost and tuition is made up through the generosity of benefactors, alumni, fund raisers and on going development efforts.  In addition to keeping tuition as low as possible, CCHS offers significant and generous financial aid packages for those that qualify.  We will work with families to arrange for payment in a number of ways.  Please contact us to see how we can assist you in this process.

Please see the information on this page to see how affordable a CCHS education can be!

Who should apply? 

Any accepted student who is seeking financial assistance from the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston or CCHS must apply for the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program (TAP).  Although Diocesan aid is only given to eligible Catholic students, CCHS aid is given to eligible students of all faiths. The first required step in receiving funding from either source is completing and submitting the Diocesan Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application.
