The building of an active, inclusive, and thoughtful community that reflects the attitudes of the Heart of Jesus is central to both the school’s founding mission and overall philosophy. We know students learn best when they are engaged in an educational environment where teachers, parents, staff, coaches, and other school members work in concert with similar values, shared goals, and common purpose.

Life at Sacred Heart is for the family. In addition to our academic program, a variety of formal and informal activities provide enrichment for our students, our parents, and the community at large and deliver tangible ways to live our Goals and Criteria. Further, we take seriously our commitment to the local and global community, our responsibility to be good stewards, and our obligation to act in service and justice.
