Welcome Sacred Heart Parents

Sacred Heart is more than a school; we are an educational community striving to provide an outstanding experience for not only the student, but the entire family. Our preschool to grade 12 system allows for siblings of varying ages to all learn on the same campus. This provides a unique benefit for our younger students who take comfort in knowing that their big brother or sister is only a short walk away. Our continuum also results in many students joining the "Providence Circle"; this is a special group that has spent their entire educational career, from kindergarten to commencement here at Sacred Heart.

Our parents play an integral role in the educational experience. We look to provide a variety of opportunities for parents to actively engage in every facet of their child's time at Sacred Heart. Athletics, music, theatre and art events are a great way for parents to see their child's talents come to life while also discovering new talents. It's amazing to see so many parents at all of our events. It's not only just being at the games, art shows, concerts, and plays but also volunteering their free time to be a part of the team or program with their child. These events show parents what their child has accomplished and how they have grown throughout the year. Students and teachers work very hard to showcase their work to their family and friends.

Intellectual development is a main part of Sacred Heart's core values. We aim to involve parents in their child's development as much as possible throughout their Sacred Heart experience by offering programs, clubs, and events. Programs and clubs such as the National Honor Society and the Debate Team allow parents to come and cheer on their child as they take big steps in their educational journey. Academic events such as Market Day in the elementary school and Science Fairs also allow parents to see what their child has been learning while observing them in their school environment. Parents are also able to see the open communication being implemented by teachers first hand. iParents is a tool for parents to keep up to date with their child's academic progress; to learn more about this tool, click the button on the right side. In the High School, our guidance department does all they can to involve parents in the college advising process and academic advising as a whole. The Sacred Heart guidance counselors endeavor to foster the personal, social, academic, and spiritual growth of each student throughout his/her school career while keeping parents in the loop every step of the way. As a college preparatory school, part of our mission is to prepare students for the next stage in their academic journey, entrance into higher education.

Our main goal is for every student at Sacred Heart to gain as much knowledge, integrity, spirituality, and service as possible throughout their experience here. We are a community and by working together, we can not only make sure your family gets the most value out of your experience here, but also make a lasting impact.

  • Parent-Teacher Partnership

    Achieving our goals of spiritual development and faith integration, academic excellence, and character development and leadership skills for our students requires a strong partnership between parents and teachers. A successful educational process can only happen through a partnership of mutual respect and common goals.

    Communication is the key and we have to be clear about the expectations we have of each other. While parents are the child's primary educators, teachers are educated professionals and often see students in a different light than parents do. A high level of mutual trust, respect, and support is necessary. We are able to form effective partnerships when both parents and teachers acknowledge that each is trying to do their best with the children.

    Parents may expect teachers to provide quality instruction, to maintain order and discipline in the classroom, individual consideration of each child, updates on students' progress, and communication of any issues. Teachers may expect parents to support school policies, to support teachers' decisions, to help with (not do) homework and assignments, to communicate with the teacher, and to provide the necessary supplies and appropriate uniforms.
