Tuition Assistance

Central Catholic High School has established a tradition of scholastic and personal achievement that is second to none among secondary schools. We understand that the cost of an excellent program is significant, and we are committed to making this experience available for all students, regardless of their ability to pay. Candidates for admission are considered solely on the merits of their academic ability and character, and the need for financial aid has no bearing on admission.

To apply for financial aid, go to the Financial Assistance page and complete FACTS Tuition Assistance & Scholarship online application. Please contact Katie Sanchez in the Business Office at (210)225.6794 x206. with questions related to Tuition or Tuition Assistance.

FACTS is a third party that helps Central Catholic in assessing and verifying the tuition assistance needs of a family. Families interested in applying for assistance will need to complete a Financial Needs Assessment (FACTS Tuition Assistance and Scholarship Application). Our school code is 1611. Unless otherwise stated, all forms of tuition assistance and scholarships require a FACTS application. Fully complete the application and submit all required documents by the deadline in order to be considered for tuition


The Financial Needs Assessment in FACTS can be reviewed for additional tuition assistance by Hope for the Future, a tuition assistance program by the Archdiocese of San Antonio available to Catholic and non-Catholic students who meet eligibility requirements and enroll in one of the Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of San Antonio. This program is separate from Central Catholic's tuition assistance; therefore, Hope for the Future has its own deadlines and notification dates. Families may have to submit the FACTS application twice to be considered specifically for Hope for the Future. Learn more here.
Specific tuition assistance based on set criteria. Scholarships fall into two categories.

ST. JOSEPH'S FUND The Central Catholic St. Joseph Fund is available for enrolled families that experience unexpected circumstances that significantly impact their ability to maintain their financial commitment to Central Catholic. Allocations from these funds are normally intended as a one-time award aimed to ease the financial burden associated with unexpected circumstances in the family. As circumstances change, we hope that families will contribute to the St. Joseph Fund in an effort to replenish the fund and “pay forward” the blessings made available by generous donors. 
MARIANIST EXCEL PROGRAM EXCEL, established in 1992, identifies at-risk students in urban elementary schools and provides them with financial, academic, and social support so that they can succeed at Marianist high schools. The program normally accepts four incoming freshmen and provides 2/3 of the cost of tuition. Families must complete the FACTS Grant & Aid application as well as a separate application is required.  Please contact Katie Sanchez in the Business Office for more information.

In partnership with Aramark and Sabor, the Work for Tuition Program allows parents/guardians to staff concession stands at events held at various arenas. For each event worked a percentage of concession proceeds are returned to Central Catholic School and applied as payment towards tuition costs.  Central Catholic encourages its families seeking financial assistance to also participate in the Aramark program. For more information regarding the program, please contact Sandi Badillo, at (210) 380-0810 or [email protected].
