Central Private - Tuition Assistance

Each year, Central Private dedicates resources to assist qualifying families who may need assistance paying tuition for children entering kindergarten through 12th grade. We have selected FACTS to conduct a fair and confidential assessment of each family to determine the amount of financial need. Applications for assistance must be submitted annually through the FACTS portal. There is an approximate 2-week processing time.

FACTS applications take into consideration more than overall income. Allowances are made for living expenses, retirement, taxes, medical costs, certain unusual expenses and debts, and investments. Families who feel they may qualify are encouraged to apply.  Because funds are limited and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, we recommend parents apply early. Tuition assistance awards are made only after a student has received an offer of admission to Central Private.

ACE Scholarship Program

Students at Central Private also have the option to receive financial aid through a third-party organization called ACE Scholarships. Central Private does not have any affiliation with ACE scholarships. Applications and approvals are made through ACE, and then ACE works with Central Private to coordinate tuition payments.
 
About ACE:
The Louisiana Tuition Donation Credit Program (TDC) allows Louisiana children to receive scholarships to qualified K-12 private schools, allowing parents to choose the school that will best prepare their children for college, careers, and for life.
