Tuition / Assistance

St. Henry District High School is committed to serving our community by providing the opportunity to earn a college-preparatory, Catholic secondary education to any student who wants to attend SHDHS. Each year, our Tuition Endowment and Financial Aid funds continue to grow! Last school year, SHDHS disbursed more than $300,000 in tuition assistance to SHDHS families.

TUITION / FEES*
Diocesan Tuition$7,450
Non-Diocesan Tuition$8,450
General Fees$500
Registration Fee$100
Athletic Fee$50 (per sport, $150 cap/family)
TUITION DISCOUNTS

SHDHS offers tuition discounts to families with more than one student registered, as well as to those who pre-pay tuition in full.

  • If you have more than one student registered, the second student’s tuition is $600 less than the first student’s tuition.
  • A third student’s tuition is half the amount of the first students tuition.
  • Families will receive $100 discount if tuition is paid in full by July 31.

*For the 2017-18 school year, there will be a two-tiered tuition structure for diocesan high schools.

  • The first rate, or diocesan rate, is for a Catholic student registered in a parish in the Diocese of Covington. This rate is currently $7,450.
  • The second rate, or non-diocesan rate, is for a student who is not Catholic or is a Catholic student from outside the diocese (Cincinnati, Indiana or even Lexington). The non-diocesan rate is $8,450. According to diocesan policy, this rate has to be higher than the first and is approximate to the actual cost per pupil.
  • The general fee of $500 is added to the total tuition amount. You should add $500 to the amount of tuition mentioned above.
NEW STUDENTS ONLY

All incoming students are required to purchase a Chromebook through SHDHS for use both at school and at home. This one-time $500 cost includes:

  • ThinkPad Yoga 11e 3rd Generation Chromebook
  • 4-year insurance coverage
  • Management software
  • Parent/student bootcamp

Families have three tuition payment options; monthly, quarterly, or pre-paid.

  • Monthly tuition is the total amount (tuition + fees) divided by twelve (tuition is collected in the months from July through June).
  • Quarterly tuition is the total amount (tuition + fees) divided by four.
  • Pre-Paid tuition is the total amount (tuition + fees) minus a $100 discount. Payment must be received by July 31 to qualify for discount.

All Senior tuition must be paid in full by May 1.

FACTS / Financial Assistance Application

Last year, SHDHS was able to grant nearly 65% of the need of families who qualified for financial aid. In every case, this enabled families to keep their children enrolled here at SHDHS. Families can apply for financial aid beginning on February 1. Click here to access the online FACTS application or call 859.525.0255 to request a copy from the front office. All applications are reviewed and processed by FACTS, a third-party financial aid firm. Note that FACTS will only evaluate families with students registered to attend SHDHS the following fall. FACTS reviews the applications and ranks applicants according to need. SHDHS then awards financial aid based on available funds.

Families are notified of their level of financial assistance before the first tuition payment is due in July. All information in this process is completely confidential and all agreements must be renewed annually. 2017-2018 Financial Aid Applications must be submitted by May 1, 2017. Families often ask about work study programs. While we have offered work study in the past, we now prefer, in the best interests of our families, to simply grant families who qualify the needed funds without requiring students to work. If you have questions regarding the financial aid process, please contact Susy McAfoose, SHDHS Business Manager, at 859.525.0255 or smcafoose@shdhs.org.

Merit-Based Scholarships

A merit-based scholarship is offered solely based on a student’s academic achievement. It is important to note that the KHSAA mandates that any student participating in a sport cannot receive more than 25% of his/her tuition in the form of a merit-based scholarship. Thanks to the generosity of our friends, alumni, and supporters, SHDHS is able to offer several merit-based scholarships to incoming freshmen. For more information, please contact Beckie D. Middendorf, SHDHS Development Director, at 859.525.5848 or bmiddendorf@shdhs.org.
