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!"
