My daughter is now in high school but attended Sacred Heart. She was totally prepared for high school. I thank her SHCS teachers for her success in honors and AP classes. She also knows more about our faith than I do and is a great Christian role model for her peers as well as us adults! Thank you SHCS!

Our family has been a part of the Sacred Heart School family for many years. Most recently, we have been so impressed with the quality of teachers, curriculum, staff and parents. The students consistently have high achievement in standardized test scores as compared to peers. But as important, our children have grown and learned about the world from a perspective of discipline, self-control and reflection; and in a warm light of a Christian environment. There are several other reasons to love Sacred Heart including: solid sports supported by a long standing and very competitive conference which includes schools from the Triad area; an amazing campus with over 100 acres of farm, forest, rivers, hiking/walking trails, etc., that are far removed from the busy city environment, while still being a very convenient location; many clubs and groups that are too numerous to name, but include 4H, National Honors Society, Choir, Drama and many, many more. Finally, when we examine all the benefits of Sacred Heart and the cost benefit with its tuition being below other private schools, we feel very fortunate and grateful for this wonderful asset right here in Salisbury.
