Please note the definition of a parishioner is as follows: A parishioner is described as a disciple of Jesus Christ who is a practicing Catholic registered and contributing to Divine Mercy Parish. “Contributing” is defined as giving of time, talent, and treasure, living spiritually in communion with one another.  As a parish school, Divine Mercy seeks to enter a covenant relationship with our school families based on our school and parish pillars of spirituality and stewardship. Accordingly, any family wishing to receive a reduced Engaged Parishioner Tuition Rate is expected to meet certain benchmarks including:

 

  • Frequent Mass attendance and participation in parish events such as Alpha. 
  • Volunteer hours to parish, school, or children’s ministry activities. 
  • Participating in the Divine Mercy Sunday Giving Commitment at the annual suggested minimum of $624 ($12/weekly or more) per calendar year in a traceable offering.  As a reminder, you can easily set up a recurring donation at Give Central: Give Central Parish

 

Sacred Heart School utilizes Blackbaud Tuition Management for tuition payments and financial aid assessment. All families are required to set up an account with Blackbaud.  Once enrolled, families will have the ability to choose billing options (e.g. monthly, annually, or by trimester) and pay online via credit card or checking account.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

 

Our goal here at Sacred Heart is that any family who wants a Catholic education for their child be given that opportunity, regardless of financial situation. We offer financial aid to eligible families with students in grades Kindergarten through 8th. Financial applications have to be submitted through Blackbaud.

 

Once an application for tuition assistance is received, an award amount will be calculated based on individual family need, the amount of funds available, and the number of students in need of assistance per year.  The tuition assistance award amount will be communicated via a letter. The letter must be signed and returned to the school or parish business office.   
 
The award amount will be spread out over the monthly payments. Families receiving tuition assistance must remain current with tuition payments or they will forfeit the award funds.
