School Scholarships and Bursaries

Sacré Cœur is committed to the development of each student’s individual abilities to the highest degree possible. Our bursaries and scholarships enable the pursuit of excellence and foster access to a Sacred Heart education. They are an integral part of our commitment to rewarding excellence and enabling students, from all backgrounds, to achieve their educational goals.

We are also proud to offer a limited number of bursaries annually to students whose families may not otherwise be able to afford a Sacré Cœur education. Our bursaries and scholarships are funded in part by the School, in conjunction with the Sacré Cœur Foundation, and supported by the generous donations of our community.
