Rigorous Academics

Building on the rich tradition of Catholic schools, our students receive a rigorous education and strive for our core values of integrity, humility, hard work, and service each and every day.

Content-rich Curriculum

We use national standards to choose the best curriculum for our students that exposes them to content, literature, and essential skills in math, science, and the arts.

Early Childhood Education

Based on the latest research on child development and national standards, Sacred Heart School’s early childhood program provides students with the skills to thrive in elementary school and beyond.

Extended Day

Our school day runs from 8:00 AM until 4:00 PM, providing more opportunity for classroom instruction.

Enrichment Programs

Our programs support dance, music and fine arts that enrich students’ academic experiences and broaden their appreciation for the rich and often unexplored culture that surrounds them.

Dancing Classrooms

Twice a week, professional dance instructors teach students the intricate steps of merengue, tango, salsa, foxtrot, rumba and swing. The class develops the participants’ communication, cooperation, and team-building skills while increasing their self-confidence.

Urban Voices

A Teaching Artist visits Sacred Heart School on a weekly basis to enhance musical understanding. Founded by the Metropolitan Opera Guild, teaches students how to sing and perform through a varied music curriculum.

New York Philharmonic School Partnership Program

Philharmonic Teaching Artists work with grades 3, 4 and 5 to build students’ musical understanding through the symphonic experience

Creative Classrooms Visual Arts Program

The (CCVAP) is a comprehensive, curriculum-integrated visual arts program for all grades.

Education Through Music

Our younger students participate in the “Music and Movement” program that teaches rhythm and coordination through song and dance. Students use props to accompany their music and so receive a fully interactive experience.

Band Lessons

Students have the option to pick out an instrument and rehearse weekly with a band instructor. Participants learn how to read notes and play their instrument individually while also working together. At the end of the school year, the band puts on a performance for parents.

Violin

After receiving a donation of violins in the spring of 2013, Sacred Heart is thrilled to begin a violin program in the 2013-2014 school year. This program will add depth to the school’s existing arts program, and offer students a chance to explore the discipline and reward that come with playing a musical instrument.
