Our Mission Statement

Sacred Heart School Community lives the Guanellian Family Spirit of charity by embracing, with respect and esteem, children who are culturally and socially diverse. We provide a Catholic education that fosters the development of each student's physical, spiritual, intellectual, moral, social, and emotional capabilities. We recognize Christ in each person and foster the utilization of his/her gifts and abilities, so as to prepare each member of our community to contribute positively in his or her Church and society.

Title I Program

Supplemental Academic program
Sacred Heart School operates a Title I program, whose aim is to close the achievement gap and enable students to reach their potential. This program is funded by the federal government, and these funds fluctuate year to year based on student need.

Before & After-School Care

Our Sacred Heart Day Care Center provides before and after-school care.
The day care center offers early drop-off (7:00 am) and late pick-up (6:00pm) of students. Our program provides students with recreational activities in a secure environment. The students can work on homework and engage in fun activities.  There is a separate fee for these services.
