    Our son is in kindergarten at Sacred Heart and loving it! After exploring many of the Chicago private school options, we couldn't be happier having chosen Sacred Heart. They are fantastic communicators. We get frequent emails, phone calls and an amazing weekly blog showing everything that our son's class did that week with pictures. It is also a wonderfully caring environment where you get the sense that the teachers and administrators genuinely care about the students and their development as complete people and not just the academic component (though the academics are terrific).

    Our daughter started Kindergarten this year and because of the welcoming school and parent community we feel like we’ve been there forever. We are constantly impressed with the academics and depth of knowledge and understanding everyone has of our daughter. Sacred Heart makes learning fun and our daughter loves attending school everyday.

    The school is extremely open and supportive if you need to talk with them about anything. They genuinely care for their students and provide many ways to support them with an array of resources. Social, emotional, character building skills, and learning mindfulness is paramount alongside academics. We truly feel like we have a partner in our child’s education. Our daughter is known and getting a fantastic education within a positive, uplifting and nurturing environment.
    My three children just completed their 3rd, 2nd and Kindergarten years. I knew going in to our journey at Sacred Heart that my kids would get a great education, but it's really apparent to us now that SHS is more than just a great academic school. I can't say enough about the staff - so warm and loving. My kids go to school every day feeling very safe and loved. The community of parents is awesome!
