Bishop Carroll is committed to making a Catholic education available to all students and families who seek this opportunity. Tuition is affordable and tuition assistance is available thanks to the generosity of the many alumni donors and friends of BC who believe in our mission. By offering several forms of financial aid and tuition assistance, we can help as many eligible students as possible achieve their goal of obtaining a high-quality, values-based education.

The gross tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is $6,500. However, for the 2018-2019 school year, the parents/guardians of about 180 students applied for financial aid and the average award exceeded $2,600.

With flexible payment plans customized to accommodate individual circumstances, your child could earn a high-quality Catholic education.

Payment plan options can be discussed with Lynn Weber, CEO at 814.472.7500 ext. 107 or weber.lynn@bishopcarroll.org

Financial aid through Simple Tuition Solutions (STS) and Scholarship opportunities include:

The Financial Aid Process

Obtaining financial aid for a Bishop Carroll education can be done in 3 steps

Step 1: Attend the Open House/Financial Aid Info Night

A financial aid presentation is made every year at Open House in January. Parents of 8th grade students or any student new to Bishop Carroll in attendance will be entered in a special drawing for two $250 scholarships. Both registration information and financial aid information will be distributed, and additional school information and STS Financial Aid application info will be distributed.

Step 2: STS Financial Aid Application

In order to ensure a fair and impartial analysis, Bishop Carroll uses the STS Financial Aid to Determine Eligibility for Tuition Assistance for the upcoming school year. STS is the fastest and most direct method of submitting your application, and it can be reviewed electronically within minutes of submission. Qualifications are based on many factors, including but not limited to, household income, family size, number of children in college, or Catholic elementary and high schools, number of working parents, the value of parents’ assets, household expenses and others.

The STS submission deadline is March 15.

Specific instructions on how to apply are available online at https://app.simpletuitionsolutions.org/register?sc+20460 and will also be available at the Open House.The School or Scholarship Organization Code is 20460. Bishop Carroll will also hold one financial aid instructional seminar during February to assist you with the application.

The application process also requires the submission of tax data for the most current year. The tax data required includes W-2’s and all tax schedules supporting your most recent tax return. The tax data MUST be provided to Simple Tuition Solutions on or before April 15, unless the applicant has filed for an extension.

STEP 3: In May, financial aid awards will be mailed. Families who seek additional aid or personalized payment options may contact CEO Lynn Weber at weber.lynn@bishopcarroll.org or by phone at 814.472.7500 extension 107.

Junior High Athletics

Bishop Carroll Catholic High School is proud to sponsor junior high athletic teams for our students in grades 7-9. These teams welcome our students from All Saints Catholic School, Holy Name School, Northern Cambria Catholic School, Saint Benedict School, and Saint Michael School. Currently, we offer football, basketball, cross country, track and field, baseball, and volleyball at the junior high level.

We understand that participating in sports may be a new experience for some of our junior high athletes and their parents. Bishop Carroll communicates athletic announcements through the grade schools, on our social networking pages (Bishop Carroll Athletics on Facebook and Twitter), and all games and practices are noted on Bishop Carroll’s Schedule Star page.

For those who are beginning athletics, some aren’t sure of what the terms ‘open gym’ and practice may mean. Open gyms are non-mandatory gymnasium time in the sport. Open gyms are permitted during the off-season of a given sport, and allow student-athletes to experience the sport before or after a specified season. Open gyms are a great opportunity for a student to decide if he or she wishes to take part in that particular sport.

Practices are the preparations for games or contests that take place within the sports season. These are important for student-athletes to learn and understand the teaching of the sport, plays and philosophies implemented by the coaching staff, and team strategies. Practices are very important and should be considered as such. An athlete who isn’t able to attend practices shall not expect to play in games or contests.

Games and contests for each of our sports are scheduled and available through Bishop Carroll’s Schedule Star page. Athletes on all teams receive a copy of their schedule of games from the head coach at the beginning of the season.

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) sanctions all athletics at Bishop Carroll. The PIAA also specifies when the first official practice, scrimmage, and game may occur for every season. They also specify the number of contests and eligibility rules in athletics. Bishop Carroll follows all policies and expectations of the organization.

All junior high athletes must pay a $60 athletic fee. This fee is to assist the team in payment of necessary expenses that are incurred through that sport’s season. Junior high athletes should also complete an eligibility form and emergency procedure card. Both of these forms, and the athletic fee form, can be found on our student forms page.

They also must have a PIAA physical form on file at Bishop Carroll. The form must be the PIAA CIPPE form, which is also available on student forms list and at the Bishop Carroll office.

Bishop Carroll promotes and expects the highest ideals of sportsmanship from all of our athletes and families. Actions meant to demean any opposing player, official, or anyone associated with any athletic event are not in the highest ideals of interscholastic sports and will not be tolerated.

We encourage all parents to communicate with their student’s coach with any questions or concerns.
