Financing Tuition

Think you can't afford Lehman? Think again!

It is difficult to place a value on what your child receives in four years at Lehman Catholic. Unlike material gifts that you purchase for your child, the gift of Catholic education is one that will remain with your child throughout their life. To borrow a phrase from a popular television commercial, A Catholic education is the gift that keeps on giving.

Three specific values of the gift of a Lehman Catholic education include:

  •  91% of our graduates choose to continue their educations after high school at excellent state, regional, and national colleges and universities.
  • Our performance statistics illustrate the value of a Lehman Catholic education:
    ACT Composite Test Scores
    Lehman High School Average
    24.0
    State Average
    22.0
    National Average
    21.0
  • The students in the Class of 2018 (45 students) were offered over 2.5 million in college scholarships and 75% of the class was awarded college scholarships and grants

The school's Board of Trustees is committed to providing parents with financing options that make tuition affordable for your family. The tuition is set each year by the Board after carefully considering all the costs of operating the school.

  • Tuition for the 2018-19 academic year is $7,950 or $795.00 per month (over 10 months).  This can be extended over 11 or 12 months as well, if needed.
  • Course fees are assessed to cover the special materials used in the class The average fees charged to undergrads (freshman through juniors) are $325.00, with seniors paying an average of $800.00 in fees (graduation fee and senior retreat fee providing the bulk of the additional increase.)
  • There are also multiple student discounts available. T


Tuition Assistance

Financial Aid

About 40% of our current students receive need based financial aid. Since 1970, the Lehman High School Scholarship Fund has been raising funds to provide financial aid (tuition assistance). Currently, the Annual Fund is providing money to help support this effort. Tuition assistance is available to students who wish to attend the school but cannot afford the full cost of tuition.

The application requires that the parent provide basic income information (the same information provided in the Federal Government for payment of income taxes.) The applications are processed by the FACTS Management System. Once they have processed the application, they will advise the school of the amount of assistance for which the family qualifies. The school in turn notifies the family of the amount of tuition assistance they will receive.

The application deadline for FACTS in the coming year is March 30th. Because the amount of tuition assistance available is limited, early application is recommended.

All application materials remain confidential. The names of students receiving tuition assistance also remain confidential.

If you have doubts about your ability to pay the full amount of tuition, complete the application.

Local Parish Support

Each local parish provides tuition assistance for students whose families are members of one of the local Catholic parishes. Parishes with students currently attending Lehman provide the following subsidies for each member student's tuition (2015-16)

Holy Angels (Sidney) $    370
Holy Redeemer (New Bremen) $ 1,000
Saint Boniface (Piqua) $ 1,550
Saint Mary (Greenville) $    795
Saint Mary (Piqua) $ 1,100
Saint Patrick (Troy) $    600

If your parish is not listed, speak with your pastor about the level of support he would provide.

Named Scholarship Opportunities

Generosity has always been a distinguishing quality of the Lehman Catholic High School Community. Recently, several Alumni have initiated a process that exemplifies the mission of our school, “To guide students to discover, embrace and utilize their gifts and talents for the glory of God and service to others". These named scholarships are ways, in which, the Lehman community is helping to make tuition affordable for our families.

Payment Options

Option I: Annual Payment in Full

About 12% of our families currently utilize this payment option. Payment in full is due on July 5th for the next year.

Option II: Semi-Annual Payment

About 17% of our families currently utilize this payment option. Payment of one half the tuition and fees is due on July 5th, with the second payment due January 18th. 

Option III: 10-Month Payment Plan

The majority of our families (about 71%) utilize the ten-month payment plan. Equal monthly payments begin in July, and end April of the following calendar year. Lehman Catholic utilizes FACTS Tuition Management to process tuition payments through automated withdrawals from either a checking or savings account. Families elect to have tuition payments processed on either the fifth or the twentieth of each month. If desired, tuition payments can be made on both dates making the budgeting of tuition payments even easier for families (information about FACTS is available by contacting the school's business office.)
