Tuition & Tuition Assistance

We are committed to working with each family to ensure any qualified girl admitted to Forest Ridge has the opportunity to benefit from a Sacred Heart education. This past year, we awarded over $1.9 million in tuition assistance. These awards ranged from $3,500 to $32,000.
 
Tuition assistance for a Forest Ridge education is available in the form of need-based aid and merit-based scholarships. All students are considered for merit-based scholarships on the basis of information provided in the admission application, with the exception of two special opportunities for entering ninth grade students. For need-based tuition assistance consideration, Forest Ridge uses School and Student Services for Financial Aid (SSS.) SSS is a function of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and is a web-based financial aid management system. Based on the financial information you provide, which is then verified by income tax information you submit, SSS provides Forest Ridge with an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses. This helps the Tuition Assistance Committee make fair and objective decisions regarding aid allocation.
