Sacred Heart School

Sacred Heart School provides outstanding educational opportunities for children in grades kindergarten through eight.
A breakfast program and after-care are available to assist busy families.
The school is administered by the Sisters of Charity, who have long been recognized as educational leaders who promote both academic excellence and strong moral values.
Sacred Heart School is one of an elite group of elementary schools accredited by the Middle States Commission on Elementary Schools, which ensures that member schools provide the highest quality education to their students.
We consider it our mission to ensure that each of our children is provided with a sound educational foundation, a positive self-esteem, and the experiences needed to attain some integration of the scholastic, religious, moral and human entities needed to continue the learning process.
As believers in Gospel values, we hope to reflect God's love, a respect for the uniqueness and dignity of each child and one another, and an appreciation for learning which will inspire a desire for the continued learning process.
