Frequently Asked Questions 

Is it required that I be Catholic to attend Lansing Catholic High School?
No, while Lansing Catholic High School is a Catholic school, we are open to any student who wants a faith-based high-quality education and wants to know God better in his/her life. All of our students are required to take a Theology class each semester and attend Mass weekly at LCHS.

Can I transfer into Lansing Catholic High School?
Yes, it is possible to transfer into LCHS. Please visit our transfer student page and contact our admissions office for additional information on transferring a student to LCHS at 517-267-2102 or

What transportation options exist?
Many of our families carpool students to LCHS (registered LCHS families have access to our family directory to help with finding a carpool).  Students who can drive must register their car with our main office and are assigned a parking space in our student lot. Students may be dropped off as early as 7:00am each morning. Families interested in public school busing to and from LCHS should contact Lansing School District to inquire about their busing schedule and be added to the busing list if their timing coordinates with our school day (8am to 3pm).

What are typical class sizes?
Our average class size is 22 and our student to teacher ratio is 16:1.  Most of our required classes have approximately 17-27 students.  Our elective courses often have smaller class sizes.

Are there any additional costs aside from tuition?
There is an initial $25 application fee.  Once accepted, there is a $100 registration fee (or $200 if paid after April 15).  A $200 student activities fee and a $50 technology fee can be rolled into tuition payments or paid separately.  Families must also purchase textbooks and school uniforms for their students. The total cost for books and uniforms ranges from $200-500 depending on if the family purchases digital or hardcover books as well as used books and uniforms from other families.  Additionally, please note that LCHS athletics are not  "pay to play" - all are welcome!

Are scholarships available?
Yes, scholarships are available and are all based on financial need. Families must apply through FACTS to be eligible for any scholarships or financial assistance at LCHS.  To be eligible for the maximum number of scholarships and financial assistance opportunities, families must apply to FACTS by March 1st each school year.  Families will still be eligible for financial assistance after this priority deadline, but  will miss out on all diocesan scholarships. Please visit our financial assistance page and contact our tuition office for more information at 517-267-2107 or
