Gehlen Catholic will be offering a two year welcome tuition scholarship to each new student who transfers to Gehlen Catholic (as space permits), in grades 1 through 12, from a public school, home school, or other private, non-Catholic school. The scholarship amount in year 1 will be $1,500 off tuition and $750 off in year 2 (per student). Families would assume full tuition rates in year 3.

Gehlen Catholic School is very excited to offer this tuition scholarship. No financial aid forms are required for this two year scholarship.

Our excellent faculty is dedicated to maximizing each child’s God given potential in a nurturing, family atmosphere. With our small class sizes and many extracurricular activities, your child will have a great opportunity to excel. Please come and see what our great school has to offer.
