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!"

Have you heard about our new MAS program?

Sacred Heart School Offers an Innovative Approach to the Arts Entitled MAS

In Sacred Heart School’s preparation for their AdvancED Accreditation and the assurance of its continuous growth and improvement, an innovative approach to the arts entitled MAS was been born.

Music teacher Mrs. Barker, Art teacher Mrs. Thomas and Spanish teacher Senorita Alterson describe this endeavor as: “Starting this year students will be participating in a collaboratively taught multicultural arts class.  In addition to the student’s current art, music and Spanish classes, students will benefit from additional classes that focus specifically on cultures from around the world.  The teachers will be able to teach to a variety of learning styles (visual, auditory, verbal and kinesthetic); thus reaching and actively involving all students.  America is a melting pot for all cultures and we believe that it’s important to establish cultural appreciation and have them take pride in their own cultural identity. We look forward to an exciting year of providing our students with exposure to beautiful traditions, customs, music, art, people and celebrations!”
