Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"Sacred Heart School is committed to partnering with parents in the education of their most precious gifts – their children. Education of the whole child – spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, and physically - is of primary significance to the philosophy of our school.

We are based on a Love of Children, fostered in a Christian environment. We support the family by assisting in development of strong character in our children – focusing on the values of respect, integrity, trust, compassion, social responsibility and fairness. We are guided by the Catholic Doctrine, yet embrace families of all denominations. Our mission is to provide your child with the academic and moral foundation to flourish in their high school, college and adult lives.

At Sacred Heart School, we have one class per grade level. This provides us with a small nurturing environment where children are encouraged and cared for in a special way to reach their potential. Sacred Heart School provides a supportive and faith-filled setting for its students to grow and learn.
