We invite you to stop by for a visit or call ahead for an appointment. Our Admissions Director will give you a guided tour and review with you the academic programs we offer. We will also share some secrets and insight to Sacred Heart Academy’s successful existence since 1889. Should you be interested in enrolling your child, our Admissions Director and/or Principal will have an interview with both the parent(s) or guardian(s) and the student(s). We want to make certain that Sacred Heart Academy will be a good fit for you and your child. Opportunities for parental involvement will be presented.
In order to get a better feel for the student environment, and to give our staff an opportunity to interact with your child, prospective students are offered the opportunity to spend a half or full day shadowing a current SHA student. Arrangements must be made ahead of time through the Admissions Director. Prospective students are partnered with a SHA student in their grade who has similar interests and/or backgrounds. A complimentary lunch is offered.
Our application process involves two steps. You begin by completing an online application and submitting the necessary supporting documentation which includes uploading a copy of your child's birth certificate and latest transcript/report card and attendance record (if applicable). Included in the application process is a form that needs to be completed and signed by you called "Transcript Release Authorization Form". If your child has an Education Plan, a copy of that must also be uploaded during the application process. The application fee of $100 (or $200 after June 1) is due at application.
Once we review your child's application and complete their reference check (grades 2-12 only) you will receive an email with the enrollment decision. If your child is accepted, you will be provided a link within the email to complete his/her enrollment. While completing the enrollment process you will be prompted to enter your account information from which you wish to pay the tuition registration fee ($200 grades Kinder-Prep - 6; $300 grades 7-12) and tuition.
A limited amount of financial aid is available each year. The aid is based on need; however, because of the limited dollars available, not every request may be met. After applying for enrollment, should you wish to apply for financial aid, please complete an on-line application here. There is a $35 non-refundable application fee. Deadline to apply is May 15 for the upcoming school year. NOTE: an application must be on file prior to applying for financial aid. Participation in our Scrip program is strongly encouraged for all financial aid recipients.
Each April, returning families are asked to complete the online re-enrollment process and pay the $100 enrollment fee per student to secure a place for the following academic year. The fee increases to $200 after July 1. Registration fees ($200 grades Kinder-Prep - 6 and $300 grades 7-12) are deducted from your designated account on June 1. You will receive an email notification. Scholarship and tuition assistance are available on a limited basis. Participation in the SCRIP program also helps to defray tuition costs. Contact the Admissions Director for more information.
