Education for Life. The Mission Statement Focused on academic excellence, nourished by the Eucharist, and guided by the teachings of the Catholic Church, the mission of Sacred Heart School is to provide a quality Catholic education for our students whereby they will be prepared to become faithful witnesses of the Gospel and future leaders in our Church and responsible members of society. Founded on the threefold educational mission of the Church (to teach, to foster Christian community, and to encourage service), we believe that Catholic education contributes to the development of the whole person: spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, socially, and physically.

“The small class sizes, individualized attention by the teachers and challenging curriculum makes SHS a great place for my children. The dedicated teachers and staff truly have the best interests of the students at heart. It’s great to be part of the Sacred Heart Family.” - Ben Bamford, parent

Spiritual Development We believe that education should be Christ-centered and reflect the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church. We believe that every person is a child of God and worthy of love, respect, and dignity. We believe that Catholic faith and values should be modeled through our choices, actions, and the service we give to others.

• S tudents of all faith traditions find spiritual nourishment at Sacred Heart School. • S isters Of The Immaculate Heart of Mary have faithfully served for over 100 years. • Sacramental Programs. “Sacred Heart School students not only grow in knowledge and intellectual ability, but also grow and develop a value system based on Christian principles that will help them to be productive, contributing members of society and their faith communities.”

-Father Michael Messner Sacred Heart of Jesus Church

Intellectual Development Middle States Accredited

We believe that parents/guardians, as the primary educators of their children, are assisted by a partnership that exists among parish, school and community. All instruction integrates Catholic values and academic excellence and students learn through various learning styles. Our continuing evaluation and improvement of the curriculum is essential to the development of an effective educational program that promotes a life-long love of learning.

“I want to build a child’s self-esteem and instill a love of learning in a caring environment. Learning is fun and creative, and I expect that everyone will always do their very best.” - Mrs. Ann Weaver 5th Grade Teacher
