Spiritual Life

At Sacred Heart we teach the Catholic doctrine, history, and tradition. In fact, the foundation of everything we do is built on universal principles that benefit students and all of society.

Sacred Heart educators know that personal success and spiritual growth can only come with a deep understanding of self. With just the right mix of textbook learning and self-esteem, our students are able to leave school better equipped to make good life choices. Our dedicated instructors teach students the fundamentals of discipline and self-awareness – the basic morals and values necessary to become adults who understand how their individual actions can make the world a better place.

Elementary students have a religion curriculum as part of their daily learning. In the high school, students take theology courses which further help their understanding of their faith. Both elementary and high school participate in daily prayer, school liturgy, and Praise & Worship.

Does my child have to be Catholic to attend Sacred Heart? No! At Sacred Heart we welcome families of all faiths and backgrounds! 26% of our student population is not Catholic. We do teach Catholic doctrine, history and tradition. At Sacred Heart, God, Jesus and faith are not relegated to just one class but are woven into everything we do.

Practice what we preach: The school encourages students to complete service during their time at the school. Students who complete 100+ hours of service are recognized with a special cord at graduation.

A small chapel is located on the high school’s second floor. Here, students can find a quiet moment to reflect and they can add their own requests to the prayer box.

In the spirit of living by our Benedictine values, we are called to action.
Through Service, students encounter Christ as they meet the needs of others in the example of Jesus, the servant leader. “The member should serve one another.” (Rule of Benedict 33).
As a Community of learners, students work together for the common good as they grow deeper in their relationship with God and one another. “Let all things be common to all.” (Rule of Benedict 33).
By putting into practice, students recognize God in every person and honor their giftedness and limitations. “Honor everyone and never do to another what you do not want done to yourself.” (Rule of Benedict 4).
Building Integrity, students work side by side across grade levels for a cause that betters their community and supports the school. “Your way of acting should be different from the world’s way; the love of Christ must come before all else.” (Rule of Benedict 4).
By demonstrating Dignity of Work, students share in the fruitful experience of work that enriches the life of others through their action. “…they live by the labor of their hands.” (Rule of Benedict 48).
