Lumen Christi offers several ways that families can further reduce the amount of tuition paid. These are through tuition discounts per the following:
- Referral: Existing Lumen families can receive a $1,000 tuition discount for each new student they refer to the school and who successfully enrolls. If a family brings 8 new students to the school, their student attends Lumen for free that year.
- Multi-Student: A family or household with more than one student attending LCHS is automatically granted a reduction of $500 per additional student up to $2500. This is fixed and is not subject to the academic and behavior requirements required by other tuition assistance.
- St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School: Families with students at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Elementary School will also receive a tuition reduction based on the number of students at each school.
Additional Financial Assistance
In spring 2022, Lumen Christi transitioned to Blackbaud Financial Aid Management to determine eligibility for additional tuition financial assistance. Families desiring additional financial assistance are encouraged to visit https://studentfinancialaid.blackbaud.school/ and create your account by entering your primary email address as your username. Lumen’s Smart School ID# is 13874. For a family to be eligible for additional financial assistance, they must complete the application, provide all required information and documentation (including copies of federal income tax forms and W2s), and pay the $35 financial aid application fee.
The amount of financial assistance available will depend on Blackbaud’s recommendation and the level of funding in the school Scholarship Fund. It takes about 10-14 days for the school to receive Blackbaud’s recommendation once your application is complete and submitted.
Financial assistance is not automatically renewed each year; families must reapply each year. All family information is kept strictly confidential.
If you have any questions concerning the above process, you can access application instructions and frequently asked questions here or contact the school Principal or Front Office.
