    The school promotes confidence in each student, encouraging them to grow and achieve their own personal best all while focusing on the whole child with an emphasis on values and being global citizens. The curriculum adapts to each child to challenge and/or support them in various subjects. The many opportunities for the children to participate in giving back to the community appealed to our family as well as the single gender classroom with thoughtful integration of the boy and girls classes throughout each week. We love being members of this amazing community!

    We have 3 recent Sacred Heart graduates and could not be happier with the education they received at SHS. We give Sacred Heart a healthy share of the credit for helping us form them into the lovely humans they are becoming/have become. The kids blossomed not only academically but also in extra-curricular activities: Science Olympiads, school musicals, choir, basketball, service at Misericordia, and volleyball. Two went to a city Catholic H.S. and one to a CPS selective enrollment H.S. They all transitioned well and were abundantly ready for the academic rigor and had the social skills to navigate larger schools. The friendships that we made at Sacred Heart as a family are lasting; we still count many of the parents of our children's friends among our closest friends. The community is nurturing and down-to-earth-- a well-grounded place to spend 9+ years!
    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).
