Student Aid Process

Christ-Centered Learning Environment

It is the belief of the Lafayette Catholic School System that a Christ-centered learning environment should be affordable to all students. The Lafayette Catholic School System has a robust Student Aid program. Everyone is encouraged to apply for Student Aid, and all families must reapply every year.

Applying for Student Aid

The Lafayette Catholic School System’s Student Aid program is designed to make an LCSS education possible for all families based on demonstrated financial need. LCSS uses FACTS, an independent third-party company, to determine a family’s level of financial need based on information that the family shares in the application.
