A Catholic, independent, college-prep school for girls, ages 1 – 12th grade.

Investing in the future.

Committing to send your daughter to a private institution is an important decision. That's why we invite you to take a private tour of our school, come visit a Sacred Heart event like our Congé school fair, or even meet with current Sacred Heart parents to discuss the great value they have discovered in our educational program. Our Admission Team is here to help – it's what we do.

Tuition Refund Plan

Why do you need a tuition refund plan?

Your financial obligation to the school is for the full annual tuition as stated in the school’s enrollment contract. The school cannot refund tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child is forced to withdraw during the academic year.

Every year, thousands of students must withdraw from private schools. The following are examples of reasons why:

  • Family Move
  • Scholastic Difficulties
  • Change of Objective
  • Financial Problems
  • Injury or Sickness
  • Mental Health Conditions
  • Death of Parent or Student
  • Job Loss
