Sacred Heart had some amazing teachers, and some not so amazing teachers in my day. When I went there, I wish they offered more clubs, had updated soccer field, more opportunities to go out and expand on my future. However, now they have really grown, and have so much to offer. Too bad I couldn’t be a teenage girl going to Sacred Heart now because they have really transpired into a well rounded high school. My favorite part of Sacred Heart was red and gold, something that has stayed with me all these years!

Sacred Heart was easily the best thing that ever happened to me! I have the greatest friends in the world, I love going to school every day and I am excited to see what each day will bring. All the students have each others back and it is such a great environment to be in. The school lunches are great and they have healthy options too. Every summer the school gets renovated and the staff is great. Many of the classes I took my senior year were solely because I loved the teachers teaching the course. Please go to SHA if you are considering it in your high school search. I am so much more confident and friendly since coming here and I can't wait to see where the future takes me
Something I liked about Sacred Heart is the equal emphasis on both sports, and education. Sacred Heart also did a great job in preparing me for college! There is such a feeling of community between all faculty, staff, students, and parents.Sacred Heart Academy also did a great job at guiding me through the Catholic religion.
