Tuition Payment Information
Thank you for choosing St. Charles Catholic High School for your teenager. We say that a Catholic high school education is the best choice for what matters most, and we mean it. After all, what’s more important than our children and our faith? At the same time, we understand the difficulties that families face when deciding how to pay for a Catholic high school education. We appreciate your commitment.
Our strong academic results open the door to success at the college level. More than 2/3 of our students receive college scholarship offers. Last year they were able to attain merit-based scholarships totaling over $5 million. St. Charles Catholic High School represents a strong investment that can prepare our students for college and careers while providing a direct benefit in college affordability.
The most important part of an SCC education is raising our children in the Catholic faith. It’s the day-to-day teaching of faith and values, praying together, and putting our faith into action through service to others. These are all part of the witness we pass on to students each and every day. And it’s that daily, ordinary witness that changes lives.
Thank you for partnering with us for 2019-2020 and seeing the value in an SCC education! Please note the important upcoming tuition dates below.

This deadline is only for those who will not obtain a loan from FBT. Please note that this amount may be paid through FBT online or by a cashier’s check to the front office. Please be sure that the student’s name is listed on the cashier’s check.
Option 2 - Finance up to 100% of Tuition and Fees with a FBT tuition loan. You can also pay the tuition partially and finance the balance.
Financing Options and Loan Terms: If you choose to finance all or a portion of tuition and fees, you may set up a tuition loan by June 11, 2019. The loan term will be ten (10) months paid monthly if obtained by June 11,2019. The interest rate on the tuition loan is 5.0%. There is no pre-payment penalty if you decide to pay the loan off early.

Alert! Change in Tuition & Fees Important Dates
There has been a date change for the deadline to have loan applications submitted and approved by the school. The date should be June 11, 2019 and not June 21, 2019 as previously posted.
This deadline relates to obtaining a loan with a 10 month term. If submitted and/or approved after this date, the loan will be 9 months.
SENIORS & PARENTS OF SENIORS:
Mrs. Bologna sent two important emails to your parents’ emails on May 29th, she is concerned that some of you may not have seen it, because apparently it may have gone to some people’s junk folder. She will send them again this afternoon so please check your emails and if they are not visible check your junk mail please.
If you have already taken care of this , thank you and just ignore these emails!
