Welcome From the Principal

People tell us we are the "best kept secret in Troy!" Our first class graduated in 1927, and Sacred Heart School has been ever growing and changing since then. The brick and mortar of our large building, in many ways, represents the solid, Christian, academic foundation that our students receive here. Our curriculum is aligned with the Common Core Standards that are in place throughout our country. In addition to the rigor of Common Core, all children receive instruction in Spanish, Music, Technology, Physical Education and Art. Our teachers are dedicated to the ministry of teaching young children, while also instilling the importance of good character, service to others and values. We invite you to call for a personal tour of our "great school with a big heart!"

Bishop Scharfenberger celebrated liturgy with Sacred Heart School on Thursday, February 4th in celebration of Catholic Schools Week and he shared the true definition of mercy with all of us.

He spoke about Pope Francis’ declaration of a Year of Mercy and then provided real-life examples that all of us could relate to.

It was a blessing and a gift having him celebrate with us!

Mrs. Sara Quartiers, founder of “Project: Cameron’s Story” visited Sacred Heart School during morning assembly today to accept the students’ collection of 189 books (a two week effort) towards “Project: Cameron’s Story”, which will benefit neonatal intensive care units in New York State.

Mrs. Quartiers thanked the children and commended their efforts. She spoke to them explaining that “everyone, every individual, is able to make a difference. Your school has made a definite difference in the lives of these babies and their parents”.

Mrs. Ciccone, Sacred Heart School’s Pre K teacher, brought this service project to the school’s attention and they decided to coordinate the effort with their Catholic Schools Week events.
