FINANCIAL AID and SCHOLARSHIPS
The total cost to educate each student is $10,800. Allentown Central Catholic High School discounts this cost to keep the total tuition and fees as affordable as possible for our families. In addition, ACCHS offers financial aid to those families that qualify based on financial need to help offset the total costs of an ACCHS education. Financial aid applications MUST be submitted each year through the FACTS tuition collection website. There is no guarantee that financial aid awards will remain the same from year to year.
Financial aid is available for all incoming students regardless of grade. Applications must be completed online through FACTS.
Late applications will be considered; based on financial need. Eastern PA Scholarship Fund (EPSF) and Opportunity Grant (OTCS)
are also available via the FACTS online application; based on income and school district restrictions.
