As we look ahead to the coming year, we are mindful of the uncertainty that faces us all during this COVID-19 pandemic. School leaders continue to work on plans to ensure Christian Brothers High School is positioned to quickly adapt to evolving conditions essential to protecting the health, safety, and spiritual well-being of our community.
Economists and civic leaders are predicting the economic impact will likely be significant and we know that a number of CB families are already experiencing challenges as California’s stay-at-home order continues into its second month. As such, we are pleased to share that the Christian Brothers Board of Trustees has authorized the use of up to $500,000 from our emergency cash reserves to establish a COVID-19 Tuition Relief Fund. This fund is dedicated to assisting families whose finances have been negatively affected with temporary, one-year tuition relief.
Families whose finances are negatively impacted and those who anticipate a probable negative impact, are encouraged to submit an application for one-year tuition relief. We ask that requests be submitted by May 15, 2020, to ensure time for review, allocation and notification by early June. Our goal, to the extent that funds are available, is to ensure that students continue their studies at CB during this economic crisis.
Requests may include:
- Individualized tuition relief for the 2020-21 School Year
- A deferral (restructuring) of tuition and/or registration fees for the 2020-21 School Year
- A combination of both of the above
Please note that the $700 registration fee will be fully refundable for any family deciding to withdraw for financial reasons before August 7, 2020.
This health crisis has affected each of us in different ways. As we work together to ensure that our Lasallian Catholic community continues to thrive, we ask that families, alumni, and friends who are in a position to help, prayerfully consider supporting fellow members of the CB community through this difficult time.
