Christ the King Catholic Church


Many families need and receive financial assistance for Catholic school tuition. The Diocese of Lansing believes a Catholic education should be available, accessible and affordable to any family that wants to provide their children with an authentically Catholic, academically rigorous education. To support that, Christ the King Parish provides financial aid to its parish families for Catholic schools and homeschooling. CTK awarded $147,500 in scholarships for the 2022/23 school year.


Our scholarship program is a need-based assistance program. Need is determined by an independent, third-party service, FACTS, which makes its assessment based on family income and expense information. The FACTS application has a section that offers families the opportunity to list any changes in their financial situation, and these are also taken into consideration.

Eligibility Criteria

·         The family must be members of Christ the King Parish Ann Arbor. Membership is defined as: 1. Registration with the parish; 2. regular attendance of Sunday Mass at Christ the King three (3) times or more per month; and 3. regular financial support of the parish.

·         School aid is available to CTK families for K-12 students in Catholic schools (including homeschool).

·         Catholic school aid is only for tuition.
