Tuition & Affordability

Thank you for considering Sacred Heart Academy Bryn Mawr (SHA). Choosing an independent school education takes careful financial planning for most families. At SHA, we are committed to offering an education that is not only faithful to the Five Goals of a Sacred Heart education, but is also accessible to families across a wide range of economic means.

Priority Enrollment:

For interested families, we offer a priority enrollment deadline of Sunday, December 1, 2024. Completed K-8 student applications received by December 1 will receive decision notification by Friday, December 13. Priority enrollment consideration will also be given to siblings and daughters of alumna at this time. 

Effective January 1, 2024, a rolling admissions process will begin and K-8 application profiles will be reviewed upon completion on a space-available basis.

Smart Tuition FAQs

Families choosing Payment Plan 2 and 3 are required to enroll in the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP), administered by DEWAR. The cost for this plan is 1.4% of the annual tuition.  (The cost for this insurance is added to the SMART Tuition plan.) Please note that your financial obligation to the school is for the full annual tuition, as stated in the school’s enrollment contract. The school cannot refund tuition or cancel unpaid obligations if your child withdraws during the academic year.
