Our Mission

Our emphasis is to form ethical and responsible citizens who are increasingly competent, faith-filled, optimistic about the future, and prepared to succeed in our ever-changing world.

Maintaining High Standards

We engage in an ongoing process of evaluation, certification, and accreditation of both teachers and programs. This accountability guarantees the continuation of our traditionally high standards. Our curriculum meets or exceeds all all state regulations and guidelines while diocesan guidelines ensure a strong religious education curriculum.

Our faculty members are fully qualified professionals who are committed to bringing out the best in their students as they grow in knowledge, skills, and values. As proof, our students consistently receive awards, medals, and recognition at State and regional events including: Science Fairs, Math competitions, spelling bees and other events.

Smart Investment

A Sacred Heart Academy education is worth the investment. It’s money well spent. The education and values instilled at an early age will pay a lifetime of dividends. Sacred Heart Academy represents affordable excellence. In addition to a strong program in the “basics,” we add the significant “plus” of religious, moral, and spiritual development.
