Sacred Heart School - All Faiths Welcome!

Welcome! Thank you for your interest in Sacred Heart School, and for visiting our website to learn more about SHS and everything we have to offer you and your child.             

We are blessed to be in our 125th year of educating students in a Catholic-Christian environment, and we are thankful for the opportunity to educate your child(ren) and to provide the many benefits a Faith-based education in a Christ-centered learning environment. Sacred Heart School is an extension of the values and beliefs fostered in Christian homes like yours, as our religious environment compliments and reinforces your parental Christian values.    

Our mission is to continue the strong academics, discipline, and family-oriented atmosphere on which Sacred Heart School’s legacy is based. Most importantly, we strive to make the presence of Christ felt throughout our classrooms, playground, extra-curricular activities, and the whole school environment. Our teachers promote a positive self-image, create an atmosphere of concern, mutual respect, and encouragement, while cultivating an awareness of the needs of all God's creation.    

Sacred Heart School sits on a 15-acre campus which includes two playgrounds, a soccer field, a baseball diamond, and much "green space" to expand as necessary. In addition to the core classes of reading, math, science, social studies, and English, Sacred Heart School offers computer classes, music, art, Spanish, and physical eduation in Kindergarten through grade 8. Sports, band, and other extra-curricular activities are offered to students in grades 5-8 (there are no "tryouts" as everyone gets to participate). Students graduate from Sacred Heart School and go on to excel in high school, not only in academics, but also in sports, drama, band, chorus, student council, scholar bowl, Illinois Scholars, prom and homecoming courts, and various clubs.

Again, we welcome you and your family to Sacred Heart School, and we want to see your child(ren) thrive in the Christian environment that’s been in place here since 1892. If you have questions or would like to schedule a personal tour of our school facilities, please call Christy Hakman, Sacred Heart Parish Marketing & Development Director, at 217.347.7177.
