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!"

Fire Prevention

Mr. Handerhan came to the Pre K and shared his fire fighting knowledge with all. Mrs. Brady was called into duty and even suited up to demonstrate some of the life saving skills that were taught.  The Troy Fire Department kindly drove a truck over for our inspection.

Service to Others

Mr. G’s Kindergarteners raked leaves for a neighbor in need and were rewarded with fun and home baked cookies. Mr. G, students and chaperones took the CDTA bus to and from school which was a great experience in itself.

 

Mrs. Brandt’s third graders participated in “a Simple Day of Giving” with the Grassroot Givers organization on Saturday, November 4th. They collected word search books, helped decorate cookies, packed boxes and so much more.
