Tuition and Fees

Sacred Hearts 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 financial aid programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Sacred Hearts Parish is dedicated to providing quality Catholic education for all families. The school is funded by tuition, subsidy from the parishes of Sacred Hearts and St. Albert´s, interest earned from the endowment fund, and fundraising efforts. Therefore, in choosing Sacred Hearts School for their children´s education, parents make a commitment to financially support the school. The tuition rates are established and reviewed annually by the School Commission with the approval of the Finance and Pastoral Councils.

At the time of registration, each family signs a tuition contract indicating their choice of payment options. Parents are responsible for payment of the amount of tuition remaining after subtracting subsidies from the parish to which they belong. Families who do not fulfill their financial obligations to Sacred Hearts School jeopardize their enrollment status. Report cards/student records may be held if financial commitments are not met. Recognizing that some families may need assistance in keeping their financial commitments to Sacred Hearts School, programs of tuition aid and grants are offered to those who qualify. Tuition fees will be pro-rated for families who withdraw during the school year.
