Tuition Tiers & Schedule

Sacred Heart Cathedral School has two tuition tiers:  Parishioner Tuition Rates and Non-Catholic Tuition Rates. Parishioner Tuition Rates are supplemented by the parish from which the student is a member and are for families with students at SHCS only.

The Catholic Charities Tuition Evaluation program works with Catholic families who wish to enroll their children in Catholic schools but may lack the financial resources to do so. Tuition Evaluation counselors meet with families to review household income and budgets; counselors then make tuition support recommendations to parish pastors, who make the final decisions on fund allocations. 

 Families new to Sacred Heart who plan to request tuition support should submit an application at For the information letter click here for English or Spanish. Contact the SHCS Business Office at 865.558.4101 or email


In the event of withdrawal from SHCS (this includes withdrawal prior to school year start date), tuition charges from the beginning of the school year through the remainder of the current quarter will be due and payable on the date of withdrawal.  All student fees (Book, Technology, Miscellaneous, Home and School) are neither refundable nor pro-rated and are also due on the date of withdrawal.  Transcripts will be held by the school until full payment is received. For withdrawals due to circumstances beyond parents’ control, an exception may be made at the discretion of school administration.
