Tuition and Financial Aid


Empower Illinois

The State of Illinois has created a new way to fund scholarships for children who choose to attend Catholic schools through the “Invest in Kids Act.” Scholarships offered through this program have the potential to cover up to 100 percent of tuition and eligible charges for next school year at Marian Central Catholic High School. 

The Empower Illinois Scholarship Granting Organization website (www.empowerillinois.org) will be accepting applications for the 2021-2022 school year beginning Wednesday, January 13, 2020 at 6:30 pm.

This year, the reservation will form will be available at 6:30 pm, to give families time to enter their information before submission at 7:00 pm. The reservation will have two pages. On page one, you will enter basic information, such as parent name, student name, and contact information. On page two, you will review this information and click submit. Only after clicking submit on page two will you receive your first come, first served timestamp.

On January 17, you will be notified by email when part two of the application opens. You can complete this step whenever you are able to ensure accuracy, but we encourage you to submit your application before January 27 for the best chance at receiving a scholarship.
