Financial Aid

Stone Ridge granted over $2.5 million in need-based financial assistance for the 2016-17 school year. We are committed to working with families to provide an unparalleled Catholic education. Families seeking financial assistance are required to submit an application via the FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment by January 15.

The value of a Stone Ridge education can been seen from the words of a member of the Class of 2016. She wrote a handwritten note to our Head of School after graduation that said:

Dear Mrs. Karrels and the Scholarship Committee,

I am writing this letter to thank you for my education. I came to Stone Ridge thirteen years ago and have since then become a confident woman armed to take on the world with a set of skills and values that only a Sacred Heart education could have given me. But none of this would have been possible without you. I received financial aid and scholarships for every one of those thirteen years and for that I will be eternally grateful. Thank you once again and I hope you have a great summer.
