Tuition

By choosing a Catholic school, a family is choosing to invest in a child's future. A future of college and career success, but more importantly the daily reminder to strive towards eternal reward in heaven. A Catholic school education is a financial investment, and our graduates and their families would attest that it is well worth it!

The Sacred Heart School of Glyndon School Board reviews and sets tuition annually. We are proud that our tuition remains competitive within our local market and remains significantly lower than many independent schools.
