Overview

Overview

Sacred Heart School says

Sacred Heart Catholic School exists to promote faith in Jesus Christ, to educate youth, and to minister to all. Each child is unique, good, and a special creation of God. It is this child, the cherished responsibility of the family, who is in our care. We strive to surround each student with the strength of the Catholic Church's Faith and tradition. and the power of Prayer. We, the personnel, school board, and parents, believe that each child has wonderful potential and promise for the greater glory of the Kingdom of God. Our task, as Catechists, is to nurture and challenge all learners to achieve this potential in body, heart, mind, and soul: a firm, loving faith in God and His Church. Sacred Heart strives to meet the comprehensive goals for education which include helping students to be purposeful thinkers, effective communicators, self-directed learners, productive group participants and citizens who are responsible and responsive to the needs of society. We come together as a spiritual and an educational community; a Christian family founded upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a community, we are committed to provide these educational experiences in a climate of trust, respect, courtesy, and enjoyment, enlivened by the gospel spirit of freedom, love, service and charity.

Curriculum

Because a young mind is like a sponge, we introduce our students to a myriad of learning experiences.

Sacred Heart’s dedicated teachers are trained in differentiated learning, meaning same-age students at different levels are taught in different ways. Students may not all get the same homework and additional staff beef up instruction for challenged students as well as advanced learners.

ELEMENTARY Fine Arts: Music Class (Daily), Music Programs, Band (5th-6th), Visual Arts Class in a dedicated classroom. Languages: Spanish (Weekly, K-6), Latin (6th) Technology K-6th (Weekly) STAR Program (6th) Physical Education (Daily)

HIGH SCHOOL At the 7-12th grade level Sacred Heart functions as a college prep school with core classes focusing on science and math. Many classes use college textbooks. Some juniors and seniors, in fact, often earn college credit. High School students are required to take two years of Spanish or Latin, and those in grades 11 and 12 study Calculus at the neighboring community and technical college. In the spring every student in grades 7-12 takes part in a week long “Beyond the Classroom” program where they may take a course not normally offered in our curriculum, such as sewing or robotics. Other students engage by job shadowing local professionals, where they witness careers ranging from pharmacy to electronics to computer-assisted drafting.

Fine Arts: Visual Art (8th-12th), Concert Band (7th-12th), Concert Choir (8th-12th), Languages: Latin I & II, Spanish I & II, Science & Mathematics Business & Technology Language Arts Beyond the Classroom (Week-long Enrichment Prg.)

Mission Statement
