Tuition & Financial Aid


A $500 tuition deposit and a completed enrollment contract start the payment process. The deposit is then deducted from the total tuition when a payment option is selected.

The tuition for Sacred Heart Academy for the 2016-2017 school year is $14,600. Tuition for each school year includes activity fees, class trip fees and technology fees including the lease of a laptop computer.

The athletic fee is $50 per sport, per athlete.

Financial Aid

Approximately 30 percent of the students at Sacred Heart Academy receive financial aid through the school’s endowment fund. Sacred Heart Academy awards financial aid on the basis of need as determined by the FAST (Financial Aid for School Tuition) program.  Additionally, families have to reapply each year. A student must be enrolled, $500 tuition deposit paid, for the 2016-2017 school year before an application for Financial Aid will be considered. Scholarship recipients are reviewed annually. Awards are based on need and number of requests. 

You can access the financial aid application and read more about our Financial Aid Mission on the Financial Aid Mission and Application page.
