Flexible Tuition Program
PCHS Flexible Tuition
Flexible Tuition Program is a sliding scale tuition model designed to make a Peninsula Catholic education accessible to more families by meeting the needs of each family’s unique financial situation. While every family will continue to contribute to their child’s tuition and fees, our New Flexible Tuition Program enables all families the opportunity to access an affordable PC education for their children.
One of the most attractive qualities of the New Flexible Tuition Program is its simplicity.
Families with the economical means will continue to pay the full Peninsula Catholic tuition while families whose resources are less abundant will pay a tuition fee based on their ability.
Thus, all students are afforded the opportunity to be welcomed into our community.
Factors like income, family circumstances, and the cost of living are assessed by FACTS, a confidential third-party service online. Their recommendations are considered by our Administration as each request is individually reviewed to determine the personalized flexible tuition rate for every family. By making a Peninsula Catholic High School education more financially possible, we will have the opportunity to provide an exceptional Catholic education for your student.
Step 1 - Complete your FACTS Application
Peninsula Catholic utilizes FACTS, a confidential online service, to review each family's financial circumstances, taking into account such factors as family size, adjusted gross income, number of children attending schools that charge tuition, and assets/liabilities that are not reflected in household income. All families are asked to provide the same financial information for consideration. The confidential application is easy and most families complete it in about 15 minutes.
Before you begin your application on the FACTS website, have the following documents ready to upload to supplement your application
Completed Federal Tax Return (from the previous year) including all supporting tax schedules
W-2 forms for all individuals listed on the tax return
Documentation for Social Security income and Child Support
Please note, a processing fee of $40 will be required to submit your Flexible Tuition Program application.
For questions submitting your application, contact FACTS at 1-866-412-4637.
Step 2 - A Flexible Tuition amount is determined for your family
After your confidential verified application has been reviewed, you will be notified with your flexible tuition rate.

FLEXIBLE TUITION FAQS
Flexible Tuition is a sliding scale tuition model that is designed to meet each family’s unique financial situation. Instead of a one-size-fits-all tuition rate, families will pay what they can afford.
The Flexible Tuition model is a different approach to tuition assistance. We recognize that many families who might not expect to be eligible for traditional tuition assistance may still qualify for a modest tuition discount. Rather than focusing on a tuition scholarship or aid, the focus is on: What level of tuition can my family afford to pay? Our goal for our Flexible Tuition Program is to make a Peninsula Catholic education affordable to families for whom a traditional tuition assistance structure might not be helpful.
Flexible Tuition is calculated on the basis of financial information submitted by a family to FACTS, a confidential online service. FACTS submits flexible tuition recommendations to be considered by the PC Administration to make a final determination for the adjusted tuition rate.
Every family situation is unique; therefore, we encourage any family interested in the Flexible Tuition Program to apply. Factors such as family size, income, expenses, assets, and other tuition obligations are considered in the FACTS assessment. There is also an opportunity for sharing any extenuating circumstances of which the Administration should be aware.
