Sacred Heart School (preschool through grade 12) is a private, Catholic, co-educational, college preparatory learning community. As a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Divine Providence, we strive to inspire minds, define character and encourage responsible leadership through a curriculum that prepares students to pursue knowledge now and throughout their lives.
In the tradition of the Sisters of Divine Providence, we seek to develop a community of faith that encourages students to act with compassion, to work for a just society, and to pursue opportunities to develop and share their God-given talents in service to society.
Established in 1947, the school is located on a 120-acre suburban campus on the Kingston and Plymouth town lines in Massachusetts, with convenient access to major highways and the commuter rail.
Sacred Heart School's rigorous curriculum is rooted in the traditional academic subject areas, including an emphasis on liberal arts, and embraces technology as a vital component of the school's academic program. .
