Lower & Middle Schools
Sacred Heart Schools actively seeks applications from socially responsible, enthusiastic students, capable of succeeding in the school's challenging academic environment - individuals of diverse backgrounds who will become fully involved with the many resources and who will contribute positively to the community for Lower and Middle School grades 1-8.
Parents considering Sacred Heart Schools should know that, while vacancies may exist at any grade level, the primary entry points are preschool, grade 6 and grade 9.
Sacred Heart Middle School provides the Tablet PC program for all sixth through eighth grade students. In this program, students have 24/7 access to the world of information and powerful learning tools, through the use of a personal tablet computer. The program successfully integrates 21st century learning and skills into the daily lives of students. More about this exciting program can be found by visiting Technology in the Academics section of the website.
The application process for grades 1-8 typically begins in the fall. Candidates are selected on the basis of school reports and transcripts, personal recommendations, entrance examinations, interviews and the application itself. Applicants are encouraged to participate in a full-day shadow visit, while prospective families are invited to join us for an informational tour for grades 1-5 or an Open House for grades 6-8. Each of these events will give you and your child a deeper understanding about our goals and mission as a Sacred Heart School.
