Tuition & Financial Aid: Investing in tomorrow.

Investing in your daughter's education from a private, Catholic and independent institution is an important decision. To help you see the value in a Sacred Heart education and make you comfortable in this choice, we encourage you to take a private tour of our school, participate in a Sacred Heart event, or meet with current parents to discuss the value they have discovered in our educational and faith-based program. Our Admission Team is here to help you make those connections – it's what we do.

Our doors are open. So is our financial aid.

We recognize that the cost of an independent school education is significant and may be outside of the means of some of our applicant families. Sacred Heart’s financial aid program is designed to bridge the gap for families with a demonstrated need. Whether a family qualifies for such assistance is determined by individual circumstances and the overall demand, which varies year to year. Applicants must be accepted and enrolled for the upcoming academic year at the Academy of the Sacred Heart before the financial aid award is issued.

The information here, together with the frequently asked questions below, may help your family determine if applying for financial aid is right for you. If you have additional questions, please contact Beth Murphy in the financial aid office |   

When does the financial assistance process begin?
The 2022-2023 will be available October 12, 2021. The deadline for submission for first-round consideration is Friday, January 7, 2022 (*NOTE: Extension until Friday, January 14, 2022).

Academy of the Sacred Heart uses Blackbaud Financial Aid Management (formerly SMART Aid) – a private and secure site where you will enter your financial information. Blackbaud Financial Aid Management provides an independent-third party assessment of your financial need by employing a proprietary formula that indicates how families use their income. By having your family’s full financial picture, we will be able to make an accurate decision on a possible financial assistance award. Blackbaud Financial Aid Management is one of the financial aid services approved by Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA).
