Sacred Heart School is an educational ministry of Sacred Heart Parish in Groton, Connecticut.
It is a private co-educational school of the Diocese of Norwich for the purpose of providing a quality education based on the teachings and beliefs of the Catholic Church.
At Sacred Heart School we provide a robust curriculum that builds upon a foundation established by the 3 Rs to create a well-rounded environment that sets the stage for continued educational achievement.
The parents, teachers, staff, and administration of Sacred Heart School work together to educate our children to facilitate their development into moral, productive, and compassionate members of society.
In creating a Catholic faith-based environment, we believe it is through each child's unique learning styles and abilities that we come to truly experience the Gospel values.
Sacred Heart School exists for the purpose of guiding its students toward Catholic, faith-based values and morals, academic excellence, creative expression, responsible citizenship, and physical development.
It provides a steadfast foundation for the continuing growth of each individual, keeping Jesus at the heart of all that is taught.
Instruction is authentic in doctrine and contemporary in presentation.
Through a nurturing environment, each child is helped to discover his/her talents and to develop self-confidence to the best of his/her God-given abilities.
Respect and love for oneself and for others, as well as a sense of social responsibility are lived and learned in Sacred Heart's faith community.
Knowledge of God, of life, and of diverse cultures are offered to prepare students to effectively meet the challenges and opportunities of society.
