For three decades, the Network Summer Service Projects have offered students in the Network of Sacred Heart Schools the opportunity to live Goal III in a very special way. Applications for the 2021 program are due January 29th.
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.
N.A., Class of 2019
I experienced growth in service and justice by helping out children at their summer camp. I also became more appreciative of what I have, and aware of how fortunate I am.
After my Network summer service experience in New Orleans, I am very thankful for everything I have. I will start thinking about the little things and be happy. Not everyone lives the life I do now, and I should be very thankful for that.
I felt more connected to the Network of Sacred Heart Schools and our Goals. I also realized that we have the ability to help others.
While in Miami, summer service helped me become more connected to the Sacred Heart Goals because I never really thought of the action, I just thought of what each Goal meant. During the week, I experienced every single Goal (5).
A week in Omaha helped Emma connect service and community action and how to be more conscious of helping sustain the earth's natural resources.
