Free/Reduced Price School Meals and Textbook Assistance
Bishop Chatard participates in the National School Lunch Program which provides free or reduced-priced breakfast and lunch to those students who qualify. Any parent who believes a student may qualify for this program and other benefits it offers, such as textbook assistance, may apply.
A new application must be completed each year to be included in the program. If your situation changes, applications can be made at any time throughout the school year. If a student qualifies for free/reduced lunches, he/she automatically qualifies for textbook assistance.
College Fee Waivers
Those who qualify for free/reduced school meals are encouraged to contact BCHS College Counselor Pam Nixon (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information about SAT/ACT test fee waivers and possible college application waivers.
