At Sacred Heart Academy, our program is rooted in faith, intellect, service, community and personal growth. Through our Five Goals students are encouraged to take risks, reach beyond their comfort level and expect more from themselves as lifelong learners and responsive leaders. Education extends beyond the classroom and our students seek opportunities and share experiences both as individuals and as a school community.
