Sacred Heart School

  • 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. .
