Do you offer a payment plans for Tuition?


  • Tuition can be paid in full at the start of the academic year, semi-annually, or in 12 monthly installments.
  • Families will select a payment plan option in August when they receive access to their online tuition management account.  Tuition plans must be in place prior to the start of school.

How much does tuition cost?

  • The tuition rate for the following school year is established each year by the SHS School Advisory Council and is posted on our Enrollment Hub (linked here) in January of each year.
  • We offer different prices, depending on age of the student, and parish affiliation.

Is the cost of tuition eligible for any Tax benefits?

As always please talk to your financial adviser about specifics. The 2017 tax reform package expanded 529 plan benefits to include tax-free withdrawals for private, public or religious elementary, middle and high school tuition. The new law also allows traditional 529 accounts to be rolled into 529 ABLE accounts without taxes or penalty.
