Arts Support

The SHP Fine Arts Booster Club is a volunteer organization that fosters camaraderie and school spirit within the performing and visual arts community at Sacred Heart.

Working in concert with the SHS administration and Parents’ Association liaisons, the Boosters seek ways to benefit Sacred Heart students by enhancing the quality of the fine arts programs, expanding available resources, and supporting student opportunities to perform or participate in national or international competitions and concerts.

  • What We Do


    The Fine Arts Boosters (FAB) is a Parents’ Association Club established in 2011. Our mission is to support the Fine Arts programs at Sacred Heart Preparatory, including those in the classroom and those that are extracurricular. Our support is given in many ways, including financial, event and activity coordination, promoting visibility for and participation in the arts, and program parent support.
  • Financial Support

    By administering and promoting the Amazon and eScrip program at SHP, we assist in generating earnings which in turn may be used by the fine arts programs to enhance and/or provide additional resources for both classroom and extracurricular experience. Additionally, FAB assists the fine arts programs in limited-use fundraising efforts toward special activities, performance tours, or resources, as needed.
  • Events & Activities Coordination

    FAB provides a forum for easy coordination of individual fine arts liaisons for combined events in the Fine Arts department. In addition, FAB assists in the coordination of campus calendars, provides support and advertisement for activities, etc., as needed.
  • Promoting the Arts @ SHS

    Throughout the school year, we assist in increasing the visibility of fine arts on campus, with a goal of building awareness and participation from the student community and support from the greater SHP community of parents, teachers, staff, and alumni. As boosters, we also promote fine arts events at school-wide events, such as the Christmas Boutique, Parents’ Association Meetings, in the school parent newsletter, as well as through an all-school Fine Arts Newsletter, and by maintaining a Fine Arts Boosters webpage.
  • Parent Support

    Our goal is to provide a dynamic community for new and current Sacred Heart parents whose children are interested or active in the arts - working to build a parent community around the arts as a whole, as well as in individual areas of concentration.
