The mission of Sacred Heart demands that we be more than an excellent school. We are also a ministry of the parish, helping our students to develop a life of faith and works as they grow into their role as contributing members of the church. 

SHS PhotoThe principles of our Catholic faith are integrated into the school. Religion class teaches that Jesus was sent to show divine goodness and human potential for good. The Salvation history unfolds through the study of Hebrew and New Testament Scriptures. Students are encouraged to develop a personal relationship with Jesus by studying the elements of our faith and by serving the community. Basic concepts of social justice are emphasized. Students attend Mass together once a week, with different grades taking turns to plan and lead participation in the services. Preparation for the sacraments is included at the appropriate grade levels, including: 

  • 2nd Grade: First Reconciliation and First Communion
  • 8th Grade: Confirmation
Multiple school-wide service projects throughout the school year give our children the opportunity to develop a committed faith that touches the heart. Students are welcomed into a warm, nurturing environment where they are expected to treat each other with respect and kindness.
