At Sacred Heart School, we recognize each person as a living expression of God's love.
We accept each person as intrinsically good and deserving of unconditional respect.
We believe each person is unique, having special talents, abilities and needs.
We believe that each child is a multi-dimensional child of God.
We accept responsibility for fostering not only a child's intellectual growth, but also for fostering a child's spiritual, emotional, social, and physical development.
The message of Christ is central to all that we do at Sacred Heart School.
As a faith community, we are striving to build God’s kingdom on earth.
In the words of Archbishop Oscar Romero, “ This is what we are about: We plant seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted, knowing that they hold future promise.
We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces effects beyond our capabilities.” Sacred Heart School is a co-educational Catholic parish school dedicated to academic excellence, faith formation and service to others.
We are a faith community committed to teaching the word of God and to giving witness to the message of Jesus Christ.

Sacred Heart has an excellent acedemic program and very good non-academic programs. Local Catholic high schools consistently compete for SH grads.
