FINANCIAL AID and SCHOLARSHIPS
The total cost to educate each student for the 2022-2023 school year is $11,500. 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 Simple Tuition Solutions 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 for the 2022-2023 school year must be completed online through Simple Tuition Solutions. Simple Tuition Solutions (STS) has partnered with the Diocese of Allentown, Eastern Pennsylvania Scholarship Foundation and its affiliated schools, to replace FACTS Tuition Management beginning with the 2022-2023 school year. STS aims to improve upon the financial aid assessment and the tuition management process that has been in place over the last several years. Please click on the STS logo (above) to start the process of setting up your payment plan and begin your financial aid application for the 2022-2023 school year. Please note: the financial aid application will require your 2021 tax return.
