Sacred Heart Academy

For more than a century, Sacred Heart Academy has delivered an education rooted in the very best Catholic tradition. This extraordinary combination of faith, community, and tradition provides an unparalleled foundation for the future. The Academy engages students in grades Pre-K through 12 in a culturally diverse educational experience of the highest quality. The well-rounded curriculum offers rigorous academics, service learning, competitive athletics, award-winning arts, and a comprehensive extracurricular program within a nurturing Christ-centered learning environment.

SHA students are inspired to achieve their full  potential, open their minds to new possibilities, and prepared to excel in college and in life. Contributions can benefit facility and technology improvements; classroom, cultural and athletic experiences for students; tuition assistance; or other areas of greatest need.

SHA Foundation, Inc.

The Sacred Heart Academy Foundation, Inc., is a non-profit organization created in 1976 to support Sacred Heart Academy. The Foundation is an endowment. Contributions build the principle and the interest earned is given to the Academy to help with annual operational expenses including teachers’ salaries. 

Alumni, grateful parents, staff members and others committed to the future of Catholic education can give knowing the contribution will continue to benefit students for generations to come. Your investment increases the endowment, which enhances each annual distribution of the SHA Foundation.

The sole purpose of the Foundation is to support the Academy in its mission to educate students with a strong foundation in the Catholic faith. By giving to the Foundation, you help secure the future of SHA and its Catholic school mission.
