Tuition and Fees

Tuition Assistance

Approximately 29% of Sacred Heart students receive tuition assistance. Based on demonstrated need, tuition assistance awards are granted up to 95% of tuition and fees. In the 2021-22 academic year, Sacred Heart has granted over $3M in tuition assistance.

For some families, the cost of full tuition can stretch resources beyond the limit of their annual budget. The tuition assistance program is committed to making a Sacred Heart education available to students, regardless of their family's circumstances.

Awards are made at all grade levels and are decided on the basis of need and the availability of funds. Awards are for one year and, although recipients must reapply each year, returning students are given first priority for funds. Future awards assume students remain in good financial, academic, and behavior standing and continue to demonstrate financial need.

If you are awarded tuition assistance, you will be able to apply for additional financial support for certain expenses over and above tuition ( e.g., Specialized After School Classes). This additional financial assistance would not, however, cover the costs of transportation, uniforms, supplies, school lunches or certain other miscellaneous expenses.

Sacred Heart Schools admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
