Anyone who applies for admission to Sacred Heart, Kindergarten through Grade 11, who has a demonstrated financial need. Financial need is defined as the difference between what it costs to attend Sacred Heart and a family’s demonstrated ability to pay. There is no assistance available for students in Pre-Kindergarten and Junior Kindergarten. Requests for tuition assistance must be indicated at the time of application for admission.
Students who initially enrolled in Kindergarten through Grade 11 without financial aid are eligible to apply if they meet all of the following criteria:
a) Two full years of enrollment at Sacred Heart
b) Significant change in circumstance
c) School account in good financial standing
Funds are not available for families with pre-existing needs that were not disclosed at the time of initial admission.
Since it is our belief that families bear the primary responsibility for financing the education of their children, it is our policy to expect both parents to contribute financially, even if that employment is outside their normal profession or line of work.
The exception is if there are prevailing medical or other reasons (i.e. young children at home) which preclude a parent from earning an income. Each application and circumstance is evaluated individually. When a parent is not earning an income it will be important for the family to provide an explanation of why that is the case. Please include this in writing when submitting your Personal Financial Statement letter to the Committee. In the absence of an explanation, the school reserves the right to consider the potential for income to be earned by a non-working parent.
