Principal's Message

Dear Parent,
 
Thank you for visiting Sacred Heart School, a ministry of Divine Mercy Parish in Winnetka, Illinois! We are a proud 2018 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, which means we are one of the top-performing private schools in the nation as ranked by the U.S. Department of Education.
 
Even more, Sacred Heart School is a family and a home to generations of students. We are committed to “educating children’s hearts and minds” -- to instilling values deeply rooted in faith and service while providing a solid academic foundation teaching 21st century skills.
 
Our teachers go above and beyond every day to ensure the growth and success of our students. When I walk into their classrooms, I am constantly amazed at the way they interact with students, plan meaningful lessons, meet individual needs and provide specific feedback. They are committed to ongoing professional development -- nearly all have master’s degrees and many take classes at night or weekends to gain additional accreditations.
 
In addition, our teachers collaborate with our fully staffed Student Services team. Together they work to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of each student, including those who need support or enrichment.
 
Sacred Heart students thrive academically, but there is so much more to their day -- we offer year-round no-cut sports, a highly regarded drama program, numerous after-school enrichment programs and a teacher-staffed Homework Lab.
 
For these and so many other reasons, Sacred Heart School is truly a special place. We hope these materials give you a good sense of our programs -- whether for a 3 year old entering preschool or an 8th grader getting ready to launch. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have or to introduce you to a Sacred Heart parent. Thank you for your interest in Sacred Heart School -- it would be an honor and privilege to have your child as part of our family.
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Ms.Kristen Fink
