Sacred Heart Schools (SHS) actively seeks applications from socially responsible, enthusiastic students, capable of succeeding in the school's challenging academic environment. Individuals of diverse backgrounds will become fully involved with the many resources and will contribute positively to the community. Like most high schools, Sacred Heart Prep (SHP) provides students with the skills necessary to succeed in college.
What makes us stand out is that we develop a lifelong love of learning within the context of a solid set of values. This provides a foundation that guides our students through the course of their adult lives.
Sacred Heart Preparatory launched a 1:1 Program in the fall of 2011. Freshmen students use school-owned iPads in their academic courses. Training and on-site technology support will be included in the program. For more information on this innovative program, visit Technology in the Academics section of the website.
The application process for grade 9 typically begins early in the fall of the student's eighth grade year. Applicants are assessed on the following sources of information: online application, math and english teacher recommendations, principal or counselor recommendation, transcripts, admission examination with writing sample, and personal interview.
We understand that the decision to pursue a Catholic high school education requires a thorough examination of the benefits to students and parents. Applicants are encouraged to participate in a full-day shadow visit, and prospective families are invited to join us for an Open House, both of which will provide a deeper understanding of our goals and mission as a Sacred Heart School and help you to make your decision as you go through the admission process.
