At St. Henry District High School (SHDHS), we understand and appreciate the sacrifice that our families make in order to afford their students’ the many benefits of a Catholic education. We are humbled by these efforts and join you in working to extend our mission of “providing a well-rounded, college-preparatory education that teaches students to live the Catholic faith by embracing the Gospel message of Jesus Christ” to all students who want to attend SHDHS. Through the generosity and support of our many alumni, parents, friends, and community members, SHDHS is blessed to offer financial assistance to qualifying families through our Tuition Endowment and Financial Aid funds. Last school year alone, we disbursed more than $300,000 in tuition assistance to SHDHS families.
FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, an independent, third party company, conducts financial analysis to determine each family’s financial need. Once the process is complete, SHDHS will receive a confidential report outlining the need and financial situation of each family that applied based on the information obtained in applications and supporting tax documents. Only those students who are registered to attend SHDHS will be considered eligible for financial assistance (i.e., student’s registration paperwork and fee must be submitted before financial assistance eligibility will be determined).
