Affording Stuart

A Stuart education may be more affordable than you think. As part of the Sacred Heart network of schools, we are proud of our commitment to providing an education that is both exceptional and accessible. Stuart annually awards $3 million in financial aid to our students, and currently, more than 40% of our students receive some sort of financial support to attend Stuart. 

Payment Plan Options

Three options are available for the payment of tuition. Families may elect a payment option based on their personal financial situation.

  • Tuition may be paid in full; due June 15
  • Tuition may be paid semi-annually; due June 15 and December 15
  • Tuition may be paid in 10 monthly installments; due the 15th of each month, for the period of May - February

Please note that all payment plans are administered by Blackbaud Tuition Management. All payments are to be made online via the Blackbaud Tuition Management portal. 

How to Apply for Tuition Assistance

Our financial aid program is designed to make a Stuart education accessible for families based on demonstrated financial need and the availability of funds. We are proud to use Clarity Application to determine a family’s level of financial need based on the information that families share in the application which includes assets, income, expenses, and debts. The application to apply will open soon. For questions regarding tuition assistance, please contact Hillary Nastro at or 609.921.6118.
