Religious Studies

Goal One of Sacred Heart education is to "educate to a personal and active faith in God." By creating a safe and welcoming environment, we invite each student to explore a personal relationship with God and grow in community with others. We welcome families of all faith whose values are compatible with those of Sacred Heart education. In religion, we educate students in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the history, traditions, and spirituality of the Catholic Church. We help them grow in their understanding and appreciation of all faith traditions and the role that all religious traditions play in the modern world. We challenge all students, regardless of their religious backgrounds and traditions, to grow deeper in their faith through study, reflection, discussion, prayer, and service. The spiritual journey is transformational and unique to each student, and emphasis is placed on what it means to be a child of the Sacred Heart, the importance of knowing yourself and your relationship with God.
