Spirituality & Service


At SHS, service is a vital component of nearly every academic and extracurricular program, and from preschool through grade 12, students serve the local and greater community in a variety of ways each year.

Campus Programs

From the high school football program’s annual “Fun in the Swamp” event working with local athletes with Down’s Syndrome, to the lower school’s “Sandwiches on Sunday” program to feed the hungry, to the middle school involvement in “Street Church,” working with the region’s homeless population, Sacred Heart students are learning the context and meaning of social justice and broadening their awareness of individual responsibility.

A sample of regular SHS service programs include:

  • Campus Kitchen (national)
