Invest in Quality Education
The Sacred Heart School of Montreal is deeply committed to nurturing an inclusive and diverse educational environment.
Recognizing that financial barriers should not impede access to quality education, we instituted the Bursary Fund as a cornerstone of our commitment to inclusivity.
Our ability to offer this financial support is made possible through the unwavering dedication and generosity of the Sacred Heart Community.
A variety of carefully orchestrated fundraising initiatives further fortify the fund, ensuring its long-term sustainability.
We are particularly honored to count the Stanley & Josefina Clarke Family Endowment Fund among our distinguished supporters. Their substantial contribution significantly enriches our Bursary Program, enabling us to extend the reach of our educational opportunities to more deserving students.

Financial Aid FAQ
There is no minimum income amount to apply for a bursary, as each family is assessed on an individual basis. To be eligible for assistance, students must be residents of Quebec and applying for Secondary I to V. Students must complete the admissions process and be enrolled for the next school year.
The Sacred Heart School of Montreal uses the services of the reputable independent, third-party organization, FAST (Financial Aid for Student Tuition) which assesses the family’s overall financial ability to contribute to their child’s education. This process is completely confidential.
Parents are asked to fill out the FAST online application form. The application service is self-guided. You may navigate in and out of the program, allowing you to partially complete an application and go back to it at another time. Online e-mail and a 24/7 helpline is provided. Tax documentation will need to be scanned or mailed to FAST for verification purposes. Information is saved on a secure server and copies of tax returns received by FAST are shredded after three days.
FAST will analyze the family’s financial situation and recommend to the Bursary Committee, on a confidential basis, the tuition reduction for which the family qualifies. The cost of this service is $45US to be paid by credit card at the end of the application session. If you do not have a credit card, please call the Director of Finance for assistance.
