Tuition Assistance and Scholarships
Tuition for the 2018-2019 school year is $13,850. This includes the $300 tuition deposit due at registration to hold your daughter’s place in the class. A separate $250 technology fee is assessed each year for lease of the student's iPad. Tuition covers most other fees and the student yearbook. It may be paid as a one-time payment or in 10 monthly payments. There is a $150 discount for one-time payments.
Here at Sacred Heart Academy, we know that an excellent education is an investment in your daughter's future. Therefore, we are dedicated to providing tuition assistance to as many families with demonstrated financial need as possible. For the 2018-2019 school year, SHA awarded nearly $1 million in tuition assistance and scholarships to qualified students. Below you will find information outlining the steps on how to apply for aid.
The Archdiocese of Louisville and Sacred Heart Academy use the FACTS Management Company to manage tuition assistance forms. For your convenience,
SHA families seeking tuition assistance must complete the FACTS aid form by February 28, 2019 to be considered in the first round of awards. Please note that SHS allocates most, if not all, tuition assistance resources during this initial round. Assistance is need-based and is awarded on a first come, first served basis. Those applying after this deadline will likely have limited access to funds. We strongly encourage all those seeking assistance to complete the application process by February 28, 2019. Tuition assistance notifications for families meeting the February 28 deadline will be distributed to families the week of May 1, 2019.
SHA cannot award incoming freshmen students until they have completed the High School Placement Test. Transfer students must complete a transfer application before they may be considered for tuition assistance. You may contact the SHA Enrollment Office at 502.896.3926 for additional information.
Sacred Heart Schools will host a tuition assistance workshop on January 8, 2019. Please check back for more details. Representatives from the SHS business office will be on hand to answer questions and to help families complete the online aid forms. A translator will also be available for our Spanish-speaking families.
Please Note the Following:
- If you have more than one child in an Archdiocese school, you only need to complete one tuition assistance form. Deadlines for completion and notification dates may vary between schools.
- The FACTS form requires a nominal administrative fee (disclosed on the form).
- FACTS requires detailed copies of 2017 tax return information. Required items are outlined on the FACTS form. FACTS does not require information from 2018 tax returns, as many families will not have this information yet.
- Tuition assistance is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Families need to apply for tuition assistance on a yearly basis.
- For questions about your tuition assistance award, please call the SHS Business Office at 502.896.3911.
Sacred Heart Academy awards renewable four-year merit-based scholarships to freshmen who score in the top 5% on the High School Placement Test. Only students who take the High School Placement Test at SHA on the assigned testing dates (including the make-up date) are eligible. These scholarships range from $1,000 - $3,000.
Other scholarships available that require a demonstration of need require a family to submit a tuition assistance application to FACTS. The scholarships vary in amounts and in the qualifications for consideration.
To view available scholarships, visit the scholarships page. This year, those interested in applying for need-based scholarships will be required to complete a brief online scholarship application in addition to completing the FACTS form.
