Network of Sacred Heart Schools

Lower School

The Lower School at SHS is comprised of approximately 240 students in grades 1-5. They take part in a dynamic, engaging academic and co-curricular program that emphasizes foundational concepts and development of the whole child - intellectual, spiritual, and physical.

We invite you to get to know Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton through the admission process and discuss with us how our unique Preschool - Grade 12 community may be the right fit for your family. We look forward to working with and coming to know your family during this process.
As we have all adjusted to doing things in a new way this year, Covid-19 has both forced and allowed us to reimagine the admission process. Fall 2020 will look different than in years past. Please visit our Virtual Admission Portal and then in early September we will post updates about the necessary details to prepare for the launch of the 2021-22 season. If you have specific questions before then, we are here! Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Contact our office at admission@shschools.org for more information.
