Financial Aid Information

SCHOOL TUITION ASSISTANCE supports Saint Stephen of Hungary School’s (SSHS) commitment to engaging students of diverse backgrounds and providing them with affordable educational opportunities. 

SSHS’s financial aid program offers support to qualified families based on need and availability. Approximately 15% of the families at SSHS receive financial aid. Awards are granted for one year at a time and must be reapplied for annually.

Financial awards are limited and dependent on fundraising sources including the St. Stephen of Hungary School Foundation. 

SSHS uses our enrollment/tuition vendor Blackbaud to evaluate financial aid applications. Blackbaud opened the portal for 23/24 applications on October 4, 2022 for a family fee of $35. Please submit your application by January 31, 2023.    Click: smartaidforparents

SSHS also has the opportunity to recommend K-8 families to the INNER-CITY SCHOLARSHIP FUND (ICSF) and CHILDREN'S SCHOLARSHIP FUND (CSF).  During the first quarter of 2023, these programs will email a reminder to current recipients to submit documents via TADs for the 23/24 school year.   

For newly accepted students to SSHS, in addition to submitting a financial aid application through Blackbaud, please contact Director of Admissions Judy Dickson at [email protected] if you are interested in being nominated for the ICSF and CSF programs. 

Notice: Effective for the 2024-2025 school year, financial applications will be accepted for K-8 families.
