Message from our Principal

Dear Parents of Sacred Heart School, University Gardens:

 

Welcome to our website.  I pray that all the information you receive on our site will be up lifting, beautiful and useful to you as a person, parent, and co worker in the great responsibility we share as People of God, as co- educators.  Jesus bless you for being such as beautiful example to your children, to each other.

God bless you,

Our Mission

 

The mission of Sacred Heart School is to provide students with an excellent, bilingual education based on the values of Catholic Christian life, where God is the center of our lives and the student are the center of our educational work.

 

Our Philosophy 

 

Sacred Heart School is a coed Catholic school, from Pre-Kinder to eighth grade that offers a constructivist humanist and social education, respecting learning styles of our students within an evangelizing setting. Our institution respects the individuality of students by promoting appreciation for diversity in our school community. Therefore, our objectives are developed in an environment of participation and cooperation between teachers, students, parents, administrative staff and other members of our school community.
As a Christian community, we honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus, who embodies and represents the totality of Christ*s personality, His love, and His unconditional devotion. We are enlightened by the Franciscan and Vincentian charismas that are characteristic of the Congregations that lead our school. Both styles of devotion guide us toward the acceptance of God as the Center of our lives and simply put ourselves at the service of those in need.
The excellent standards that distinguish our institution are attained through an integrated education in both languages, English and Spanish. It includes the teachings of the Catholic Faith, a solid academic base, exposure to arts, music, technology, sports, science and math laboratories, languages and a varied program of activities.
