Frequently Asked Questions
We accept applications year-round. Applications for kindergarten may be submitted two years prior to when a child would begin with us. Applications for other grade levels are accepted and retained from year to year if enrollment space is not immediately available.
SHMS is a Catholic school but welcomes a diverse population. About 50% of our families are Catholic and 50% practice other faith traditions. This diversity offers a rich platform for faith sharing and understanding. All SHMS students are expected to participate in daily prayer, school liturgical celebrations, and daily religion class. We rely on our students to live the Ursuline Core Values: Community, Leadership, Reverence and Service.
Tuition for the 2017-18 school year is $13,850 per student. Sacred Heart Model School is a private, independent school and, unlike a Catholic parish school, cannot rely on parish supplements to offset tuition costs. There is no sibling discount.
To apply for financial aid, obtain a FACTS Tuition Management form for SHMS. It is typically available online beginning December 15 prior to the year of admission. Visit our Tuition, Financial Aid page.
