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!"

Congratulations!

We just celebrated something special here at Sacred Heart Church and School!
Antonio Morabito, a fourth grader at Sacred Heart School, was awarded the Parvuli Dei Medal at today’s morning assembly. The purpose of the Parvuli Dei program is to help Cub Scouts explore a wide range of activities in order to discover the presence of God in their daily lives as members of their families and parishes. They also develop a positive self-image through contributions the make to the group and/or community.
Mrs. Morabito received a miniature version of the medal for her dedication to raising her son in the Catholic faith.
The last recorded time that this medal was awarded to Cub Scouts in our area was 1986!

Sixth grade had lunch together at Manory’s after the show and took their traditional photo while downtown.
