Financial Aid & Scholarships

Cathedral High School has a financial aid process to ensure that we assist as many students as feasibly possible. We provide financial aid in the form of tuition discounts. External scholarships are available through the Foundation for the Diocese of El Paso and the Cathedral Alumni Association. The scholarships available have their own separate application process which you can learn about by contacting the Director of Admissions, Mr. Janicki at 915-532-3238 ext. 695 or [email protected]
The first step to apply for any form of aid, is to complete and submit the New Student Admissions Application
Financial Aid Process
Financial aid is based solely on the family's financial need and circumstance, aid is disbursed on a first come, first served basis. No financial aid will be given without submitting an application. All families must apply through their parent RenWeb account. Families do not receive full aid; each aid is expected to comply with the estimated family contribution.
Any family receiving financial aid agrees to abide by the following:

  • Students must maintain a minimum expected Grade-Point Average
  • Students and parents must contribute time and effort to school functions (Work-Study)

Cathedral High School Alumni Association Scholarship "LQVQ" (April-June)
Available for incoming 9th graders ONLY
The brotherhood of Cathedral High Alumni has always existed ever since the first graduating class circa 1925 and it surfaced into an active action group known as Los Que Van Quedando (LQVQ) in 1997.
Danny Gutierrez in his deathbed uttered the words to his doctor "Cuida A Los Que Van Quedando" meaning to take care of the ones that were still left and became a rallying cry in honor of Danny in promoting activities for the benefit of Cathedral High School and its students
Danny Gutierrez was an institution at Cathedral, running the Tamalada and numerous raffles all by himself. He was nicknamed "Mr. Cathedral" by many who remembered how he was always selling tickets for the many fund-raisers at the school.
The class of 1958 took the lead in organizing activities and at first we were known as "La Cate 1958 - Los Que Van Quedando" but later included alumni from other classes so we were organized into a Texas 501c Non-Profit Corp., and chartered as "La Cate Brotherhood - Los Que Van Quedando, and Associates". LQVQ for short. 
LQVQ has been the oldest and cohesive and operational group of CHS Alumni ever gathered probably because we have embraced the singular sacred mission to provide scholastic financial support to the needy families of the young students at Cathedral High School
Please note that the money Cathedral High School designates for financial aid is fixed. Thus, we encourage families to submit applications early to not miss out on the possibility of receiving aid as it is a first come-first serve basis.
