Tuition, Financial Aid & Scholarship Opportunity

Students running with banners in CHS gym

In 2018-19, Catholic High School awarded over $900,000 in scholarships and financial aid.  We know that every family's financial situation is unique, and we consider every application carefully.

Although it is impossible to meet all the needs of every family, it is our goal that no family be denied an excellent Catholic education due to financial restrictions.

Financial Aid

In order to qualify for any type of financial aid, need must be established.  FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment analyzes financial need for the Diocese of Richmond. This application must be submitted with all required supporting documentation by MARCH 1 for first round consideration.

Scholarship Opportunities

Through the generosity of donors in our Catholic community, 40 scholarships have been created for the benefit of students attending Catholic High School. Scholarships are awarded based on several evaluation criteria: academic achievement, financial need and an applicant essay.   For the 2018-2019 school year, over $900,000 in Scholarships and Financial Aid was awarded to deserving families. A single application will allow students to be considered for all scholarships. The updated application link can be found here after January 15 and must be electronically submitted by March 1. With the exception of the St. Michael Scholars (see below), all applicants must re-apply for scholarship consideration annually.
