Tuition & Affordability

An investment in your child's future.

Our distinctive programs and opportunities make a transformational difference at a very critical time in the lives of our students.  Without question, your investment in an OLSH education will yield success for your child in high school, in college, and for a lifetime. We are honored by your choice of OLSH and we understand the sacrifice that each family makes when choosing to invest in Catholic education. Tuition and fees charged to our families only cover about 72% of the cost to educate a student at our school.  Through the generosity of the Felician Sisters and our other loyal benefactors, each student at OLSH receives a grant of nearly $5,000 to support his/her education.
 

At OLSH, we are dedicated to:

  • Adding layers of quality and depth to our academic programs, like our AP Advantage Program and partnership with the University of Notre Dame
  • Offering a wide range of opportunities for our students, from international travel to playing on a winning sports team; from multiple avenues for creative expression to serving as leaders
  • Providing individualized support to students, found in the OWL Center and with our talented and experienced faculty and staff
  • Developing individuals of faith and character who serve others and put values into action, encouraged by a variety of experiences like our Mission Trip, retreats, and Felician Values Fulfilled senior seminar

Our commitment to you

It is part of our mission to ensure that an OLSH education is accessible to all families in our region who desire it, regardless of their individual financial circumstances. OLSH offers tuition assistance on a funding-available basis to families who demonstrate need. The financial aid resources available to qualifying families at OLSH each year are derived from multiple sources, including individual donors who give gifts through our Invest to Transform program; companies that earn tax credits by giving through Pennsylvania’s EITC and OSTC programs; subsidies from the Felician Sisters and other groups; and monies made available through endowed and other scholarship programs. When families apply for financial aid, they are considered for funding from all sources for which they qualify.

OLSH Financial Aid

OLSH financial aid is available to assist low- and middle- income families in affording an OLSH education.  Financial eligibility is determined by the monetary guidelines established by the state of Pennsylvania for the Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program in association with the materials submitted in the application process through FACTS Tuition Management System.

Students are generally eligible for OLSH financial aid if their family household incomes are less than $90,000 plus $15,842 for each child in the family in 2020-2021.
