Scholarship and Financial Aid Mission Statement
Rooted in the Gospel of Jesus and the Mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph, Sacred Heart Academy (SHA) is a Catholic college preparatory high school for young women. SHA is committed to creating a school community which supports our core values of spirituality, academic excellence, leadership, service, and community. We enroll and graduate a highly capable and diverse student body each year. We strive to make the SHA experience as affordable as possible for as many as possible by managing tuition costs. We are also committed to attracting and retaining the most talented student-scholars. To support these commitments, SHA is proud to offer a balance of various merit and need-based scholarship opportunities.
We believe that talented, confident young women-scholars raise the level of expectation and performance for all students. Each year, SHA manages a very talented applicant pool for the incoming class. We accept a cohort of students with strong leadership and academic potential who are required to complete a rigorous curriculum and earn a New York State Regents diploma with distinction. As a result, SHA’s merit scholarships are primarily directed to incoming students who have the highest performance on the TACHS exam.
We also believe that different experiences and perspectives shape and define SHA’s dynamic learning environment. Our commitment to financial aid is rooted in the belief that an inclusive school community enhances the educational experience of all students. We recognize that every family is different. In that spirit, Sacred Heart Academy is committed to a review of every financial aid applicant’s individual situation.
