Grant Information

New Tuition and Referral Grants Announced!

Our school board is pleased to announce three new ways to help families attend Sacred Heart School.  These include a Referral Discount Grant available to current families, a Welcome Grant available to current Catholic families registered in any AoB parish and who are new to our school, and new this year, a 4th or 5th Grade Grant for new students enrolling in those grades for the upcoming school year.

Welcome Grant

Our Welcome Grant is a financial initiative for Sacred Heart and St. Charles Parishioners and is available to new students entering grades 2-8 in the 2020-2021 academic school year. Children who are currently not enrolled can apply for the Welcome Grant and receive $2,000 off of tuition per child in the 2020-2021 school year, and then $1,000 off per child in 2021-2022. Note that the Grant is only for Parishioners in good standing. To be specific, the Welcome Grant is for Parishioners who are of Category I status, meaning:

  • Are registered with a Parish within the Archdiocese of Baltimore.
  • Use their envelopes regularly or are enrolled in electronic fund transfer (EFT) at our Parish.
  • Attend Mass regularly.
  • Can provide a Letter of Good Standing from your Pastor.

If you are contributing at Mass each week and are not using Parish envelopes or using electronic fund transfer for weekly offerings, please contact Susan Spedden at  to establish your status. Those interested in the Welcome Grant can apply online for the Grant when they apply online through School Admin. Please note: If you have a family of your own but are registered under your parents’ name in our Parish, you must register your family independently and be a member in good standing for your child(ren) to be eligible for the Welcome Grant. You must be registered under your own family name for your children to be eligible for the Welcome Grant.

Fourth & Fifth Grade Grants

A new Grant is available for new, not currently enrolled students, who are entering 4th or 5th grade for the 2020-2021 school year. New students will receive $1,500 off their tuition for the first year and $1,000 the second year. For further information about our Fourth and Fifth Grade Grants please email our Business Manager, Mrs.Gina Darby, at 

Referral Discount Grant 

  •  Referral Discount Program for our current school families! Any existing family can refer a new applicant family and receive a $500 discount (no referral max, no grade restrictions). Beginning February 1, 2020: Any current family who refers a new student for the 2020-2021 school year will be eligible for a $500 tuition discount per student.
