School Advisory Council

The School Advisory Council's mission is:

  • Promote Catholic education.
  • Advise the Pastor and Principal on school related matters such as development, public relations and finance.
  • Develop strategic plans and policy for the school. 
  • Serves as a communication board between the school, parish and administration.

Curriculum, faculty, discipline, and grades are not within the SAC’s responsibilities.

SAC Membership

Members are chosen by the pastor in consultation and with recommendations from members of the board. Members serve a term of three years. Members of the SAC committee are practicing Catholics. Members include parents, alumni, stakeholders and members of the parish. School Advisory Council (SAC) members are asked to serve, not only because of their particular expertise, but because they bring their life of faith, values and a prayer life to the group that permeates all they do. Each member brings their gifts and talents to share for the benefit of making the best decisions for the future of Sacred Heart Cathedral School.


Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m..
