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.

Belief Statements

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.

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.

Intellectual Development

We believe that parents/guardians, as the primary educators of their children, are assisted by a partnership that exists among parish, school and community.
We believe that all instruction integrates Catholic values and academic excellence.
We believe that students learn through various learning styles.
We believe that 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.
We believe that staff development is an on-going process to promote professional growth and to enhance teaching techniques.

Social and Emotional Development

We believe an environment where children are emotionally and physically safe promotes learning.
We believe in the importance of developing in the child the concepts of self-discipline and respect for others.
We believe that positive relationships and mutual respect support students’ self-esteem and confidence.

Physical Development
We believe in physical learning activities that promote the physical growth of each child.
We believe that children need to be taught good nutrition, proper hygiene, and healthy life styles that promote the total development of the child.
