Types of Student Aid


Smiling Girl

Our student aid program, similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities, works directly with families for a tuition that is right for your financial situation.

Many factors are considered when determining the tuition amount a family is able to pay, including income, assets, debts, parish tithing, unusual expenses, and family size. No family pays the full cost to educate a student each year thanks to the generosity of supporters, event fundraisers, our parishes, grants, scholarships, and endowments. 

How to Apply: All families (current or new) should apply for tuition assistance. The amount a family will pay is assessed directly through FACTS, an independent third-party agency.

FACTS Grants & Aid has a $35 non-refundable processing fee and explores a family’s entire economic situation.

When to Apply: For new families, we recommend you start the FACTS Grant and Aid application as soon as you complete your Enrollment Application. Current families should apply each Spring. 


Who is Eligible: Students who are Indiana residents, at least 5 by October 1st, and a member of a household that meets financial eligibility. As an example: a household of four whose annual household income is less than $230,880 will receive aid.

Through the generosity of individuals and growth of our endowment funds, resources are available for tuition grants. There are three sections of information required to apply: Household Information, Federal Adjusted Gross Income, and Charitable Contributions. When determining who may qualify, the Student Aid office uses a sliding scale based upon the pool of applicants and total amount of aid available that year. 
Who is Eligible: All LCSS families may apply for these income-based scholarships.
