The "Gap" per student
Each year, the cost of providing a Sacred Heart Schools education exceeds tuition revenue. Tuition at SHS covers only 83 percent of the actual cost of educating our students. The current difference ("The Gap") between tuition and cost is eight percent. The Annual Fund makes up approximately 8.3 percent of our operating budget and provides the unrestricted dollars that SHS needs to support its programs after taking into account tuition funds and additional income such as endowment, rental and summer camp revenue. It is the primary means for bridging the Gap.
