The Robotics program at Sacred Heart is open to all students of all ages and abilities. Sacred Heart's mission is to educate the whole child, and the Robotics program accomplishes this by:

  • instilling a lifelong love of learning
  • making students passionately curious about the world
  • emphasizing the importance of communication and teamwork
  • promoting critical thinking in an atmosphere of wise freedom
  • seeing failure as an integral component to achieving success
  • using our skills and resources to help others who are less fortunate
We believe that passion, curiosity, and learning are fueled by robotics competitions, as well as offering a course in the Prep's Creative Inquiry Department and LMS's Creativity Hub for students to expand their horizons and build a project of their own choosing.

Each year, we are nearly doubling in size. This year, we have 60 team members at the Prep, representing 4 FTC teams, and 15 team members at the LMS, representing another 2 FTC teams.
