At Sacred Hearts School, we believe that a quality education should be available to all children. Lack of financial resources should never stand in the way. Tuition assistance awarded to students is based on need and available funds. Financial aid is not a loan and thus, doesn’t require repayment.
Tuition assistance funds are made possible through the generosity of local and national organizations and companies, as well as loving individuals who have graciously provided donations to Sacred Hearts School in order to support students and families who have been impacted by the Lahaina fires that devastated our community in August 2023.
