If you`re looking for a homey, close knit community, do not hesitate to enroll your child at Sacred Heart. I have other children who went to area public schools without a problem, so when my spouse suggested Sacred Heart I was on the fence. Well, let me tell you, I am SO glad I chose Sacred Heart. I feel as though my child is well beyond where he should be compared to other children his age, and his older siblings who went to other schools. He gets more one on one time, and they really care if your child is learning-They aren`t trying to push your student through to graduate, they want your child to learn and are preparing them for high school. I am not worried about the small class size of the middle school grades because I personally know many of the students who have moved on to high school from sacred heart and they are thriving! They also received more scholarships when moving onto catholic high school. Another thing I really enjoy about Sacred Heart is that even though I work full time, I feel very involved with my sons education. His teacher emails and texts. They also have many events at night and on weekends too! I always felt left out with my older children in public schools because many of the events were in the middle of the day. It seemed like the stay at home parents were catered to. The before and after school program is AMAZING and affordable! They also offer a phenomenal summer camp at an affordable price. My child who doesn`t like to be away from me for long periods of time never wanted to leave. At Sacred Heart they really consider everyone`s unique situation. No matter your race, religion, orientation or family situation, everyone is welcome.

Both of my children graduated from Sacred Heart... And I did as well. They attended grades K-8 and I am happy they did! The facilities are top-notch and there is a STRONG Catholic presence felt everywhere. I whole-heartedly recommend this school!!!

WE sent our two sons to Sacred Heart School and have never regretted it. Both went to college and are pursuing advanced degree. One is an engineer and the other is a sports writer.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
