Through the unique combination of Corporate Work Study funding, Indiana School Vouchers, scholarships, grants, and financial aid, Providence Cristo Rey High School helps families experiencing financial challenges with tuition. This combination of funding sources is unique for each family; the average family contribution for 2012-13 was $250. Here is an example of how it works for one family:

Work study wages earned by the student  are funded to the school to offset tuition. Indiana School Voucher recipients and amounts are determined by the State.  Cumulative PCRHS scholarships, grants, and financial aid awarded to a student will not reduce the family contribution below $200, which is the mandatory minimum family contribution. Recipients of renewable scholarships and grants must maintain eligibility criteria each year. Annually, PCRHS seeks donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations to fund financial aid, scholarships, and grants. Families complete a Private School Aid Service (PSAS) form. This organization assists us in determining each family’s unique financial contribution based upon the family’s financial situation as determined by your W-2, 1040, or federal assistance documents.
