Tuition & Scholarships

Tuition

Central Catholic works to keep tuition as low as possible, through fundraising efforts, and grant and scholarship programs, while still providing students access to outstanding academic, athletic, spiritual, and extra-curricular programs. Central Catholic’s tuition price is one of the lowest in the state of Ohio.

Actual cost to educate a student per year: $14,313
2022-2023 tuition cost for non-Catholic parishioners: $10,800
2022-2023 tuition cost for Catholic parishioners: $9,800
Average price of tuition paid by our families after tuition assistance: $6,489

Stark County Catholic High Schools award $2.5 million in tuition assistance each year

Tuition Assistance

Central Catholic offers several programs to help make tuition affordable for all families. Cost should never prevent a student from obtaining a high quality, Catholic education.
