More About Our Program

Financial Support Programs

List of 5 items.

  • Introduction

    Approximately 35 percent of the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy’s student body receives some form of scholarship or financial aid. Below you will find information about each of our financial support programs. For additional information, please contact Janis Tista at 626-685-8574, Christine Mauer at 626-685-8588 or email us at We are here to help!
  • Financial Aid

    FSHA has a growing financial aid program designed to support a strong, diverse student body that values both socioeconomic and cultural diversity. For the 2019-20 academic year, over $1.6 million was awarded in financial aid to qualified students and approximately 25 percent of FHSA's student body received need-based financial aid.

    Applying for financial assistance has no bearing on an applicant’s candidacy for admission. Decisions regarding financial aid are made after admission is determined. Families receiving aid can expect to continue receiving similar aid grants throughout their enrollment at FSHA unless financial circumstances improve.

    Financial Aid for Boarding Students
    FSHA offers financial aid to applicants whereby all sources of employment income can be verified by a United States tax return. Financial aid is not offered for room & board fees.

    The deadline to apply for financial aid is February 3. Click here for instructions and additional information
  • Alumnae Awards

    Alumnae scholarships are awarded to ninth grade students whose mothers or grandmothers are FSHA alumnae and who have strong academic records. To apply, complete an Alumnae Scholarship application. Due date is Feb. 1, 2020.
  • Scholarships

    Veritas Scholarships are academic and achievement awards available to ninth grade students regardless of their financial need. Incoming freshmen who received sterling teacher/principal recommendations and demonstrated outstanding achievement in academics, entrance exam results, co-curricular activities, service to school and community are selected as Veritas Scholars and awarded a merit scholarship for each of their four years at FSHA. Prior year awards have averaged $8,000 per year. 

    All freshman applicants will be automatically considered for the Veritas Scholarship. No further action is required.
  • Student Loans

    Some financial institutions offer loans to finance a secondary education. Repayment of these loans typically takes place over 2-15 years. Interest rates are typically better than a personal loan from a local bank and depend on factors such as credit score, loan term and loan amount. For more information, sample institutions are listed below. NOTE: FSHA does not recommend or endorse these vendors.
