Sacred Heart Academy
Peter Wingate: We've had our children at Sacred Heart since 1997, and would not have them anywhere else. SHA has rigorous academic standards, upheld by outstanding teachers and administrators. They are first rate -- we would not trade a single one of them. Their new building is exceptional with modern classrooms, and its new science lab is very nice.
By the end of 8th grade, most children are positioned to enter high school taking honors and Advanced Placement classes, having already taken Algebra I and up to 8 years of a foreign language (Spanish). Our first child was ahead of the curve when he entered high school because of his education at SHA. High school guidance counselors have told us repeatedly that they instantly recognize the SHA kids by their academic performance and the positive and respectful way that they interact with adults and their peers.
They provide sports (basketball, track, cheerleading, etc.), strong music (in-house dedicated violin instructor) and arts instruction and (the best part) a values based education that teaches children to live out their Catholic faith and embrace its heritage. Children are well prepared for each of their early Sacraments, and are prepared for Confirmation soon after entering high school. As great as the school was for our first child, it is even better today. We love Sacred Heart.
