Covington Catholic High School strives to provide every family an opportunity to join our learning community. A tuition assistance program that is solely based on financial need is in place for families that qualify. For the 2019-2020 school year, Covington Catholic families received more than $430,000 in financial aid. These financial aid grants are combined with the work study program and they can also be combined with an additional scholarship.
How to Apply
- For the 2020-2021 school year, Covington Catholic will use FACTS to evaluate requests for tuition assistance. FACTS will evaluate the financial information submitted by each family and send a report to CCH that estimates the amount of eligible tuition assistance. Families can apply for tuition assistance through their existing FACTS tuition accounts.
- The online Application for the 2020-2021 school year must be submitted to to FACTS, NOT the school, between January 4 - April 17, 2020.
- Families who apply for assistance will be notified in mid-to-late May, 2020 by FACTS through the email linked to the FACTS account.
The Tuition Assistance Fund
The budget for Tuition Assistance is set by Covington Catholic during the Spring. The Tuition Assistance Fund is a set number and will be divided to assist as many families as possible. Applying by the deadline is very important.
The money awarded for the Tuition Assistance Program is only made possible by funds raised during the Annual Appeal, the CCH Endowment Fund, and the Northern Kentuckian of the Year Luncheon sponsored by Covington Catholic. Students and families that benefit from these programs while at CCH, are strongly encouraged to participate in these efforts as alumni so that other Colonel brothers can have the same opportunity to attend Covington Catholic High School.
If during the school, your family experiences a catastrophic loss that will not allow you to complete your tuition payments for the school year, the school has a limited amount of funds in reserve to assist our families in need. You may call Mr. Bob Rowe, principal, to discuss your situation in confidence.
Work Study Program
Students that receive tuition assistance are required to work after school for a designated number of hours based upon the amount received. These tasks range from general janitorial duties, landscape cleanup, to setting up the gymnasium for the weekly Bingo fundraiser.
Boys that wish to participate in sports programs after school have the opportunity to work their hours on Saturdays or during the summer months if they cannot complete them during the normal school year.
