SHA welcomes Miss Gunther who will be teaching upper school Catholic Social Justice and Church History. When interviewed by senior Trista Brophy, Miss Gunther’s two words to describe SHA were “open and embracing.”
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.
While I have met my best friends here at school, I have also met myself. I have discovered my true potential and have been handed the tools to let my talents show. I am surrounded by supportive peers and encouraging teachers.
