At Bethlehem High School, our goal is to make tuition affordable enough so that anyone who wants a Catholic education can receive one. Financial aid is available, and all families are encouraged to apply.
Need-based tuition assistance is available to families that qualify. Last year we awarded financial aid to approximately one-third of our students. Eligibility for assistance is determined by a third-party agency, FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment.
The FACTS Online Application form will be available on the right of this web page starting December 15, 2018. (2017 tax returns are necessary to complete the application.) FACTS does charge a $25 application fee.
Actual financial aid awards will be announced in May of each year.
