Since 1898, Sacred Heart Schools has been fulfilling the mission to educate children to become exceptional leaders who love God and serve others. This mission, which emphasizes the importance of educating the whole child and promoting Christian values, clearly sets us apart from other private, independent schools. As a member of the international Network of Sacred Heart Schools, we benefit significantly from the Network's rich history, common heritage and educational philosophy.
Our mission is to educate the whole child to be a leader who loves God and serves others.
Our mission is grounded in the spirituality of the Society of the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (RSCJ) and the evolving Tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. To achieve our mission, we look to the Goals and Criteria of a Sacred Heart education which gives purpose to our objectives, a framework for our educational philosophy and inspiration for all that we do on a daily basis. As such, we are guided by a charism and conviction that embody deep-rooted values and unite us with Network schools through the United States and internationally.
As a member of the wider community of Roman Catholic Schools, our educational approach is grounded in a dynamic tradition that values the integration of the intellectual, spiritual, and ethical dimensions of our students. We take great pride in our mission to educate to a personal and active faith in God and to promote in our students an intellectual curiosity that leads to a life-long commitment to learning.
Today SHS enrolls 1,150 students in our preschool through 12th grade programs. We excel at fostering a strong sense of community among students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and the RSCJs at Oakwood. These bonds add a wonderful dimension to the atmosphere on campus.
