Mission & Philosophy


Our Mission

We believe in Jesus as our founder and that faith in Him guides our lives and moves us to action. We complement the role of the family as we work together to provide students with a quality Catholic education that promotes strong Gospel values, academic excellence, social responsibility, as well as an appreciation and respect for the dignity of life. Sacred Heart Catholic School is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA).

Our mission is to mold students who will be...

Our Philosophy

We are committed to giving our students a firm academic and spiritual foundation rooted in Catholic, moral and religious values.

We acknowledge parents as the primary educators of their children.

In partnership with them and in a faith-filled environment, we foster a deepening of our students’ spiritual development, and assist them in their pursuit of academic excellence and success.

Dedicated and talented teachers and staff model life-long learning by providing a well-rounded and stimulating curriculum.

We value our role in preparing our students to live their faith as citizens in service to the world.

Steve & Rebekah Emehiser, family group portrait
We are the parents of two girls that have attend Sacred Heart since they were in preschool. We feel that sending our children to a Catholic School is in partnership with the values we are teaching our children at home. It is important to our family that our children learn about their faith, both in words and actions in order to become good, faith-filled adults. At Sacred Heart, everyone you meet makes you feel confident that they have your child’s best interest at heart. We are constantly impressed with the enthusiasm of the administration, faculty and staff. Our children continue to be challenged academically on a daily basis. The level of detail and quality of the work our children bring home and are doing in the classroom makes us feel that they are at the best place they could be. They are being challenged to become the best people they can be. Morning assemblies, Faith Families, yearly buddies, Fun Fridays and the opportunities the children have to interact with other students at Sacred Heart are some examples of how our children know that they are part of a whole school community working towards the goal of becoming great individuals. At Sacred Heart, I believe that my children will not only graduate having been challenged by their teachers but they will also graduate a more well-rounded person. It’s been a great place to watch them grow up each and every year we have been with Sacred Heart School.
