Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I make the investment?

Over 98% of York Catholic graduates enroll in colleges and universities across the country each year, including schools like Penn State University, University of Maryland, University of Pittsburgh, Temple University.  72% of the Class of 2016 were awarded scholarships and the total scholarship aid offered by all schools totaled $7.12 million.

How do I pay tuition?

Option 1:  Tuition may be paid in full in June for the following school year.
Option 2:  A monthly payment plan may be set-up. Payments plans are set up through FACTS.

Is Tuition Assistance available?

Two need-based tuition assistance programs are available to those who qualify: The Neumann Scholarship Foundation administered through the Diocese of Harrisburg and York Catholic’s Tuition Assistance Program funded by generous donors. The online application for tuition assistance is due no later than April 15, 2017.  We do our best to help every family with financial need, however, applying for aid after the deadline greatly diminishes the chance for tuition assistance as the monies available may have already been allotted.  Please note:  Tuition Assistance will not be considered until registration to York Catholic is completed in full and all materials and registration fees have been received.  Click here for the online tuition assistance application through FACTS.

Tuition Assistance Opportunities
Neumann Scholarship Foundation

The Diocese of Harrisburg, in response to the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit Law (EITC), created the Neumann Scholarship Foundation. The EITC program provides tax credits to businesses that contribute to qualified scholarship organizations. The Neumann Scholarship Foundation has been approved by the State of Pennsylvania as a qualified scholarship organization. All scholarships offered by the Foundation are provided in accord with the laws governing this program.

Scholarships are offered to qualified students attending Catholic schools in the Diocese of Harrisburg, on a basis of need. In order to meet the state requirements, the scholarship organizations must demonstrate that families meet the state eligibility requirements. The Neumann Scholarship Foundation has contracted with a private company, FACTS, to process the information provided by families applying for scholarships. FACTS will provide the Neumann Scholarship Foundation with a relative ranking of need among the eligible families. The Foundation will award scholarships on the basis of this information.

York Catholic Tuition Assistance Fund

York Catholic High School carefully plans its budget to keep tuition as low as possible.  We realize many families need tuition assistance for their students to study at YC.  A Tuition Assistance Fund which is financed by donor generosity provides limited support to qualifying families.  Last year, over 25% of York Catholic’s students received tuition assistance.
