The FACTS Grant & Aid Application
The 2020-2021 Application is now available!
On Behalf of the Catholic Schools Office:
Given the difficulties families are facing with responses to the coronavirus (COVID-19), the March 16, 2020 deadline for completing an online FACTS tuition aid application for the 2020-2021 school year will be extended until May 15, 2020.
Financial aid applications will be processed by FACTS Management. Families applying for tuition aid in Catholic schools within the Diocese of Pittsburgh may do so by using the online link below. All applications must be completed online.
Students are evaluated for each grant program whose criteria they meet. By submitting this application, you are applying for Central Catholic Aid, the EITC program, the OSTC program and the Bishop's Education Fund (requires a Pastor Signature Sheet).
If you have questions or concerns about the application process, you may speak with a FACTS Customer Care Representative at 1-866-441-4637.
The application fee for 2020-2021 is $25. (Applicants may see a higher fee on the FACTS introductory information screens. If so, this can be disregarded.) Applications will continue to be accepted until the 2020-2021 financial aid budget has been exhausted.
Completing the FACTS Grant & Aid Application
For ALL Financial Aid Applicants:
Please complete the FACTS Grant & Aid application.
*Please select "2020-2021 Application Year"
Note: All applicants must first create a FACTS account, and then select Central Catholic High School as your institution. Additional schools may also be added to the application.
For Catholic Parish Members:
To be considered for the Bishop's Education Fund, you must submit a Pastor's Signature Form. Once the form is completed by the family and signed by the Pastor it is to be sent to the School Principal. A form must be sent to each school's Principal if the family has children in more than one school. It can be mailed or sent via email to Brother Tony Baginski, FSC, for Central Catholic students. Please see the bottom of the Pastor Signature Sheet for more info.
