Educating For A Lifetime


The Transformation Starts Here

Laying the foundation for a meaningful life does not happen overnight. We give students the love, tools and wise freedom to grow into their highest selves throughout their time at SHS. As a result, Gators become compassionate thinkers, who are curious about the world they live in and eager to make it better for others. Learn about the values that set us apart.

An Investment in the Future

We know that a Sacred Heart education can transform the life of not just the student, but of the entire family. Our goal is to ensure that parents/guardians remain confident that Sacred Heart is an attainable aspiration for their children, and an affordable option for their family.
