I love the school`s Virtue program, House mentoring program in Middle School, orchestra, Art/Theatre programs, thoughtful implementation of technology, interactive projects, and most importantly the Community. What a gift it has been to my boys to be a part of Sacred Heart.

I love this school. Each of my children is known and challenged here. The priests of the Cathedral are really involved in the school. God comes first and the school has great academics and great opportunities. You are missing out if your child does not attend Sacred Heart.
