-Scholarships & Financial Aid

Endowed Scholarships

These scholarships, made possible through generous donations to the St. Louis Catholic Foundation, provide tuition assistance and allow us to welcome into our faith community deserving students who may not otherwise have access to a Catholic education.

The Bishop’s Scholarship Fund

Granted through the Diocese of Lake Charles Office of Catholic Schools, the Bishop’s Scholarship is given to each individual school within the Diocese so that families desiring a Catholic Education may attend St. Louis Catholic. A committee at St. Louis Catholic High School determines whether a student receives this scholarship.

Students with Exceptionalities

The School Choice Program enables students with special needs to apply for assistance to attend participating schools like St. Louis Catholic High School that offer support programs. Tuition assistance is provided at 50% of the state’s per pupil funding for the student’s district. In Calcasieu Parish, that total is approximately $2,500. Assistance may not exceed the cost of school tuition, and families are responsible for the remaining balance.
