The Cathedral of the Risen Christ parish does not want to turn away any Catholic students from school because of lack of funds. Cathedral offers a variety of scholarships, and families are encouraged to apply for the Good Shepherd Scholarship. A scholarship that provides significant financial aid to families below the poverty line ($1,300 per child). If a family is unable to pay the tuition or fees, an appointment should be made with the Rector to discuss the situation.
