Sacred Heart Curriculum

Story image 1_0
is designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity, develop critical thinking skills, and nurture the desire for life-long learning.
To achieve this, our teachers shape the curriculum to meet the different needs of our students as they progress through each level of learning. The content, techniques, and structure employed in each grade are designed to reflect their changing capabilities and prepare them for the next level of learning. 

Our curriculum is rooted in a base of rigorous academic standards. The foundation for these standards is set by the Archdiocese's Office of Catholic Schools. These standards detail specific learning goals by subject for each grade. They were constructed to fulfill both State of Illinois standards, as well as the standards set by the respective teacher associations for each major subject area (e.g. the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics, National Science Teachers Association, etc.). It is enhanced by our own standards for challenging each student to fulfill their fullest academic potential.
