Tailored Tuition

Providing your child with a quality Catholic, independent, Sacred Heart education is a significant investment. Sacred Heart supports families in this commitment by ensuring that qualified Pre-K through Grade 12 students are offered the opportunity to attend, regardless of their ability to pay full tuition. Families choose from two options when applying for tailored tuition.

Short Form

This new, easy option provides the Tailored Tuition Committee with general household income and tuition affordability information. Families using this form may qualify for an award of up to $8,000, with the largest tuition adjustment typically given to students entering Grades 5-12. There is currently no fee to use the short form.

Traditional Form

Mission-fit families with greater financial need are encouraged to use the traditional form. Most families who receive awards via this form have a household income of $150,000 or less.

In order for us to allocate our resources wisely and fairly, we have enlisted the help of Blackbaud's Financial Aid Management (FAM, formerly known as Smart Aid). FAM does not decide whether tuition assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAM provides a need-based tuition assistance analysis service. FAM provides the school with a report, which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. All information from FAM is held in strict confidence by Academy of the Sacred Heart. Applications are reviewed by the Tailored Tuition Committee, which recommends allocation of resources for the next year. Please contact the Finance Team at FinanceTeam@ashmi.org with questions.
