Catholic Schools exist to form young people to be faithful disciples of Christ. Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Catholic School rooted in Scripture and the Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. By providing a Catholic education to our children, we are responding to God's call to serve one another and share our gift of faith.
SHJ has a two-tiered tuition schedule: rates for non-affiliated families (those not affiliated with a parish) and rates for actively affiliated families.
Your tuition rate is established by your active participation in your parish. Requirements to receive the actively affiliated Catholic rate are explained on the Parish Affiliated form which is signed by you and verified by your pastor.
