Tuition & Financial Assistance

What is Financial Assistance?

The Sacred Heart School of Montreal believes strongly in encouraging the development of a diverse community. Enrolment is not limited to students whose families are able to afford the tuition and it is for this purpose that the Bursary Fund was established.

It is thanks to the generosity of the Sacred Heart Community and fundraising initiatives that the Bursary Program is made possible. We have many generous donors who support our Bursary Program including

The Stanley & Josefina Clarke Family Endowment Fund

Our generous Bursary Program is helping many families this school year…

  • 22 percent of Sacred Heart students receive bursaries
  • Over $400,000 in financial aid has been awarded to 50 families
  • The average bursary is $8,300

Every effort is made to provide some financial assistance to as many as possible.

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 $53US 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.

Intro to FAST for Parents 

Start the process:

The Bursary Committee endeavours to communicate to families in a timely fashion once an application is complete.

You must reapply for a bursary on an annual basis, as one’s financial situation may have changed over the course of the year. Please fill out the FAST online application. Changes in a family’s financial status may affect the bursary amount.
