LARGE FAMILY REDUCED TUITION RATE
If you have 3 or more children enrolled at Sacred Heart School, you may deduct $250 from the tuition of the 3rd & 4th child or more. This reduced rate applies to both Parishioners and Non-Parishioners.
Sacred Heart School strives to remain affordable for as many families as possible. We are blessed to access three main channels of financial assistance: The Archdiocese of Baltimore, Sacred Heart Parish, and Scrip. Some families may also qualify for a variety of scholarships that are listed below.
Beginning November 2, 2017, applications for financial aid are now being accepted for the 2018-2019 school year, and the Archdiocese of Baltimore asks families to have all necessary forms submitted no later than the end of February 2018. Awards are generally known in late April/early May of 2018 for the Archdiocese aid. All families are eligible to apply to the Archdiocese of Baltimore for tuition grants and aid each year if they are a current family or have already applied for enrollment to The Sacred Heart School of Glyndon. To apply for financial aid, please click here. The financial aid application process is hosted by FACTS, our tuition management provider (see grant & aid assessment information here). If you have any questions about how to apply, feel free to contact Mrs. Tammy Siebert, Business Manager at email@example.com or call 410-833-0857, ext. 121.
In addition, all families who have parishioner status (those registered at Sacred Heart Parish, making regular and conscientious effort to support the parish) are eligible to receive aid from our parish. Parishioners apply through the same FACTS system shown above and awards are given at the discretion of the Pastor.
SCRIP is a program in which school families purchase gift cards at their face value (meaning paying $100 for a $100 gift card). While doing so, these families earn a percentage credit to be applied to the next year’s tuition. Our SCRIP program averages the credits offered from all of our participating retailers, and our current average is approximately 4%. In this example, buying a $100 gift card for $100 would also earn a family $4 as a credit to the following year’s tuition (lowering that year’s tuition by $4). SCRIP offers gift cards to many local and national chain stores at which our families frequently shop. Over the course of a year, many of our families earn as substantial credit in this program. Cards can be obtained online, or through SCRIP smart device applications.
Additionally, the Knott Foundation awards scholarships to students in fourth grade throughout the Archdiocese each year. These scholarships award four-year, full tuition to attend a Catholic, parish elementary school located in Baltimore City or Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Frederick, Harford or Howard counties. These scholarships honor Catholic students that excel in academics. To apply for these scholarships the student MUST meet ALL of the criteria on the Knott website. The link for these criteria is here.
Theresa F. Truschel Charitable Foundation Inc.- Ms. Truschel, who died early in 2007, specified in her will that a foundation be formed- Theresa F. Truschel Charitable Foundation Inc. This scholarship opportunity is available to provide scholarships and assistance to worthy students attending Catholic schools at all levels based on financial need, past academic performance and potential success. Further information and an application may be found on the foundation website (http://theresaftruschel.googlepages.com/)
Jack Kent Cooke Foundation Young Scholars Program. The Young Scholars Program is a selective pre-college scholarship for high-performing 7th-grade students with financial need. It provides comprehensive academic and college advising, as well as financial support for school, Cooke-sponsored summer programs, internships, and other learning enrichment opportunities. Detailed information is available on the website http://www.jkcf.org/scholarship-programs/young-scholars/
The Broadening Options and Opportunities for Students Today (BOOST) Program provides scholarships for some students who are eligible for the free or reduced-price lunch program to attend eligible nonpublic schools. Awards are granted based on household income, with the lowest income served first.
The BOOST program for the 2017-2018 school year is governed by language in the Fiscal 2018 Budget Bill. The language begins on page 135 of House Bill 150 of the 2017 session (the Fiscal 2018 Budget Bill).
Who's eligible for BOOST? Low-income students whose family income is at or below 185% of the federal poverty level:
• $29,637 or less for a family of 2
