SHS Atherton's family of alumni include former students of St. Joseph’s School of the Sacred Heart, Sacred Heart Preparatory, Sacred Heart Elementary, Convent of the Sacred Heart, Menlo or Atherton, College at Menlo, and Academy of the Sacred Heart. You are always a part of the Sacred Heart community. Alumni play a vital role in the life of the school. Formal and informal events are held throughout the year to bring together generations of Sacred Heart alumni. Through the Alumni Association, former students have the opportunity to re-establish and build new friendships, and to play an important role in helping to provide the same education that they received.

A Message from the President
Dear Fellow Alums,
It’s clear that Sacred Heart is a very special place to many people throughout the world and it’s amazing to experience the strength of its friendships. As a student, I had no clue as to the size of the Sacred Heart Family. The size and depth of relations is rapidly emerging as an important source of networking possibilities for our Alumni. I had no idea how special it would be to reconnect with the SHS Alumni community until I re-engaged with the Alumni Association a few years ago. Now, as Alumni Board President and a SHS parent, I look forward to my second two-year term full of activities, discussions and reunions.
How will our Alumni find mentors or internship and career opportunities without our help?
The Alumni Association Board is using this time of change as an opportunity to revitalize our efforts. My key goal as president is to set the board on a course to build a “Valued Alumni Network” for Sacred Heart Schools. The purpose is to provide something of value to you that will spark your interest in re-engaging and participating and giving back to your alma mater. This year, the Alumni Board and I are dedicated to strengthening our network and our LinkedIn community while providing opportunities for Alumni and Past Parents of all ages to connect with one another in fun, engaging and meaningful ways.
A perfect opportunity to reconnect with classmates, faculty and the campus is by friending us on Facebook and joining our Alumni Group on LinkedIn and before you go, update your contact information so we can stay in touch with you!
Peter V. Coleman (SHP ’88)
