TUITION DISCOUNTS

SHDHS offers tuition discounts to families with more than one student registered and 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 student’s tuition.
  • Families will receive a $100 prepayment credit plus a $20 reimbursement of the FACTS processing fee if tuition and fees are paid by July 31.

*For the 2021-2022 school year, diocesan high schools will have a two-tiered tuition structure.

  • The first-rate, or diocesan rate, is for a Catholic student registered in a parish in the Diocese of Covington. This rate is currently $8,485.
  • 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 $9,485. According to diocesan policy, this rate has to be higher than the first and approximate the actual cost per pupil.
  • The general fee of $765 is in addition to the tuition amount. Therefore, you should add $765 to the amount of tuition mentioned above.

FACTS / Financial Assistance Application

FACTS / Financial Assistance Application

Last year, SHDHS was able to grant nearly 85% of the need for 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 January 3rd. 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. 2022-2023 Priority Financial Aid Applications must be submitted by March 1, 2022. If you have questions regarding the financial aid process, please contact Connie Cornett, SHDHS Business Manager, at 859.525.0255 or [email protected].

Payments Options

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 a discount.
Merit-Based Scholarships

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 Advancement Director, at 859.525.5848 or [email protected].
