Education of the
whole person

Our curriculum is built around the mission of our school to educate the whole person – hearts and minds – for God. Our students strive for academic excellence in our rigorous, but supportive environment where timely feedback, modeling, and cross-curricular approaches serve to lead students toward truth, beauty and goodness.

Our faculty and staff are experienced and qualified educators who strive to be faithful witness of the Gospel for all our students. Our faculty collaborates across all grade levels to create a curriculum that engages every student. 

Family in Faith

Since our founding in 1906, Sacred Heart Cathedral School has partnered with students and families in a common vision to educate the hearts and minds of young people. 

We live this out through high quality class instruction, collaboration with our parents, and students who are highly motivated to learn in a warm and nurturing faith-filled environment.

We are first and foremost a Catholic school, committed to the holistic education of our students. Located in an older, established – but changing – neighborhood, Sacred Heart Cathedral School serves the educational needs of our own parish children as well as many from other parishes, and some non-Catholics.
