Financial Assistance

 
 
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.  
 
  
Financial Aid: 
 
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 1st, 2021.  Your family's 2020 tax return is necessary to complete the application.  FACTS does charge a $30 application fee.  

Actual financial aid awards will be announced in May of each year.
 
Financial Aid FAQs:  
 
Who can apply for financial aid?
All families with one or more children enrolled in or applying to a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Louisville.
 
How do I apply?
You can apply by clicking on the "FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION" link on the right side of this page.  You will be asked to supply basic demographic information and to submit your 2020 tax documents.  
 
When do I apply?
Tuition assistance applications for returning families can be submitted between December 1, 2021 and January 31, 2022.  New incoming families must apply by February 28, 2022.
 
If I have more than one student in Catholic schools, how many applications do I fill out?
Each family should complete just one form for all students (in both elementary and high school).  
 
Do I have to apply again each year?
Yes, each family must apply every year they wish to receive tuition assistance.
 
How will I know if I have correctly submitted the application?
The FACTS system will send you a confirmation email once your application has been received.  You will also see the word "COMPLETE" in a green box on your application.  
 
Is it too late to apply for financial aid?  
Completed applications for returning families received by January 31, 2022 will participate in the initial grant awards.  Applications received after that date could receive a smaller amount of assistance or no assistance, depending upon the availability of funds.
