LCA Offers Tuition Assistance

LCA is pleased to offer need-based tuition assistance to parents with children in Kindergarten through 8th grade. Sources of tuition assistance are the Cleveland Diocese (DTA) and Lakewood Catholic Academy. Families seeking need-based tuition assistance from the Diocese of Cleveland or the LCA Financial Aid Fund are required to submit a completed financial assistance form through FACTS.  LCA does not see families’ private financial information, only an analysis of need.
