Parent-Teacher Conference Info
On Friday, March 3, students dismiss at 11:30 a.m. to provide a three-hour block of conferences for parents with concerns.  This block of time is from noon to 3:00 p.m. and we ask that if your student is not working up to potential or you feel communication with an academic teacher is needed, please e-mail Mrs. Nussbaum. Requests will be taken through March 1st; she is out of the office from February 21 - 23 so if you request a conference during those days, she will get back to you when she returns.

Apply For Tuition Assistance Through March 15
We do not want tuition to be a barrier to anyone. We have something very special here and we want to share it! If you would like to pursue financial assistance there are two steps:
  1. To apply for financial assistance, including the Spalding Scholarship from the Diocese of Peoria, the FACTS Grant and Aid form must be submitted by March 15.
  2. In addition to completing the FACTS Grant and Aid form, contact your Pastor to see if there is any additional assistance your parish can provide (Please note that every Central Catholic family in our Partner Parishes already receives assistance that bridges the gap between our non-affiliated and affiliated tuition rates.)
For additional information, please email me or call 661-7000, ext. 304.
