We've had our children at Sacred Heart since 1997, and would not have them anywhere else. SHA has rigorous academic standards, upheld by outstanding teachers and administrators. Our first child was ahead of the curve when he entered high school because of his education at SHA. They provide sports (basketball, track, cheerleading, etc.), strong music instruction and (the best part) a values based education that teaches children to live out their Catholic faith and embrace its heritage. We love Sacred Heart.
