Financial Aid / Scholarships
Our faculty and staff are passionate about delivering a premier, Catholic college preparatory education to students from all backgrounds. Our mission calls us to help make Trinity Catholic High School's education accessible to families who cannot afford full tuition. To that end, Trinity Catholic High School and our generous donors provide more than $1.9 million in financial support to qualifying families each year. We are incredibly proud to assist our families, creating a lifelong partnership. Trinity Catholic High School uses a third-party company to determine the amount of aid each family may receive. The purpose of the following scholarships is to provide tuition assistance to those in need. Families and organizations provide many of these scholarships with a close connection to Trinity Catholic High School. We are grateful for their ongoing support and commitment to our mission.
