The mission of Sacred Heart Cathedral School is to educate the whole child and to develop students to their fullest potential. By educating the whole child, their needs are met spiritually, physically, and emotionally.
SHCS provides student support in a multitude of ways to ensure that each student’s educational experience is given the proper attention. Sacred Heart values close relationships among their faculty and students. Through homeroom teachers, specials area teachers, extracurricular coaches and tutors, students are known and loved.
Each student is assigned to an adult advocate. The Mentoring program provides ample opportunities for mentor and student relationships to grow as well as monitor the students’ growth, needs, and allowing them to reach their fullest potential. With this formal mentoring program, the mission of Sacred Heart will be carried out throughout campus as it cultivates and monitors relationships between students and school personnel.
SHCS incorporates a ”House System” for middle school students. The House System is a step in the development of the mentoring program. Our 20 mentorship groups are small gatherings of students from grades 6, 7 and 8 which allow the mentor to get to know students well in a smaller setting through prayer, activities and discussion. Those discussions include our lives at school and ways to grow in charity towards one another. In the House System, each mentorship group is assigned to one of four houses, named for the evangelists: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The four pillars of the House System are fun, spirit, community and service. In the larger context of our houses, new friendships are formed and students engage in acts of service to others.
