Lexington Catholic High School invites all families to apply for tuition assistance. Families are granted tuition assistance based upon their demonstrated financial need as determined by a third party, Financial Aid Independent Review, Inc. (FAIR). Applications may be submitted online beginning November 1, 2017. Your 2016 U.S. Individual Income Tax Returns can be used to complete the application until January 31, 2018. Applications submitted after January 31, 2018 will require your 2017 U.S. Individual Tax Returns to be filed. The website is www.fairtuition.com. The school code is 116 and the school password is lchs116.
FAIR's fee is $30 per family. Application packets will be available in the school office in English and Spanish for families who wish to mail their applications and supporting documentation to FAIR. FAIR’s brochure states the application deadline date is April 15, 2018. You may apply after that date. However, if the school does not receive a family’s report from FAIR by May 15, 2018 the family will be responsible for paying the tuition and fees as stated until a determination of assistance, if any, is made.
Families who apply for assistance with FACTS for their students in Diocesan elementary schools must apply with FAIR for assistance for their high school students. Families must apply for assistance each year their child(ren) is in school.
Lexington Catholic’s goal is to grant every eligible family the greatest amount of assistance for which they qualify, not to exceed 50% of the Catholic Tuition and Fees rate. The tuition grant tiers are 50%, 40%, 30%, 20% or 10% of the Catholic Tuition and Fees rate. Please refer to www.lexingtoncatholic.com
for more information on 2018-2019 Tuition and Fees rates, Tuition Assistance Grant Tiers and FAIR.
Smiley-Spalding Fund Provides Tuition Assistance

Guardian Angel Grants
Lexington Catholic offers a limited number of grants to families of incoming freshmen who have 100% demonstrated need.
