Affording Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart is committed to enrolling a diverse student body from varying economic backgrounds. Over the past several years, the Academy of the Sacred Heart has made substantial efforts to help families with the cost of a Sacred Heart education.

Scholarships and Awards

Through the support of the family of the Academy of the Sacred Heart, a number of merit scholarships are available for applicants new to the school. These scholarships recognize the contributions of the Religious of the Sacred Heart and our alums while inviting the legacy of excellence to continue into the next generation.


Tuition Assistance

At the Academy of the Sacred Heart, we believe that qualified students should not refrain from applying for admissions solely because of tuition assistance consideration. A limited amount of tuition assistance is available to students (Grades 1-12), whose families are able to establish financial need.


Referral Program

We want to express our appreciation to those who share the ASH Difference with neighbors, colleagues and friends. When current families refer a new family to ASH who is accepted and enrolls full-time, we will issue a one-time $2,000 bonus. You may receive as many referral bonuses as qualify.
