Financial aid ensures that a Sacred Heart education remains available to as many students as possible.
Masterpiece: Inspiring Education

Gifts support growing the endowment for financial aid ($2M), implementing the Initiative for Excellence in Teaching and Learning ($3.5M) and physical campus enhancements ($4.2M).
The Coffee and Conversation event series provided the Faculty, Staff and Students benefiting from the Masterpiece Campaign an opportunity to share how their teaching and learning are being impacted. Click on the stories below to learn more about the implementation of the Masterpiece Campaign.

We have met the challenge!
An anonymous donor issued a challenge, promising a 2-to-1 match of alumni, grandparent and past parents contributions up to $375,000. The $375,000 goal was met before June 30, 2017, securing an additional $750,000 contribution from the donor!
For this challenge, every $1 donated raised $3 for Sacred Heart Schools!
"We are proud to be a part of the Masterpiece Campaign and to have the opportunity to give back to Sacred Heart! As a family, we believe we have benefited from being a part of this community in so many ways beginning the day our oldest daughter Maggie started in kindergarten 17 years ago. We have been enriched by the values we all share through the Sacred Heart goals and criteria, we have been enriched by the wonderful friendships we developed with fellow parents throughout the years and we have been enriched by the exceptional education Sacred Heart has provided for our four children."
"We joined the Masterpiece Campaign because we believe so deeply in a Sacred Heart education that is accessible to everyone. Our entire family benefited from being affiliated with Sacred Heart, and we hope that many other families can have that same experience.
The Masterpiece Campaign will allow SHS to become the best elementary school in the city while also opening up opportunities for scholarships allowing more children the ability to take advantage of that education."
"We are supporters of this campaign because it is truly transformative for our own children and for all students and faculty at Sacred Heart. Nat's initiatives for teaching and learning innovation extend the legacy of academic excellence that the school has maintained for 140 years. Nothing could be more aligned with the vision of St. Madeline Sophie and the powerful mission of Sacred Heart Schools."
