There are so many reasons for families to choose SMSH...
St. Mary-Sacred Heart School teaches the Christian values that we as parents strive to instill in our children every day. It is our belief that Catholic educators teach not only students minds but also their spirit in order to develop a high character individual that will strive to make the right life choices and become high integrity members of the church and society. After 12 years at SMSH, we’ve seen the many benefits of Catholic education. Our oldest of 2 sons began at SMSH the year the full day Kindergarten program began in 2006 and is now a junior at Bishop Feehan High school in the honors program as are many of the students who got their foundation at SMSH. Our 7th grade son also began in kindergarten and has reaped many benefits of an ever growing curriculum and new middle school environment preparing him to be extremely successful in high school. Our teachings at home to be generous, kind to others, spiritual and service oriented are further encouraged with Catholic education making SMSH the best choice for our children and family.Drs. Joseph and Stephanie Capua, parents of 2015 and 2019
Catholic Education for our family is a sacrifice not a luxury. As the parents of twin teenagers at SMSH and a 1st grader, we have seen first-hand the benefit of choosing Catholic Education for our children. We often hear from our teenagers’ coaches that they are “respectful, courteous and mature” and SMSH has contributed fully to the young adults they are today. We know the catholic faith, spiritual values and moral foundation they are building daily in the classroom will continue to impact them for the rest of their lives. There is no greater gift we can offer our children. The small class size, rigorous curriculum and value based community at SMSH makes for a learning environment that stresses academic achievement, personal accountability and spiritual growth - the ideal combination for the growing child and young adult.Mr. and Mrs. Matthew and Kelly Cinelli, parent 2019, and 2025
We chose SMSH because we wanted our daughter to be in a safe educational environment where faith life is embedded throughout her entire day. We want her to grow into a strong, smart, caring, and faith filled young woman. Saint Mary’s Sacred Heart School will help her do just that. We couldn’t be happier with our choice.Mr. and Mrs. Brian and Carrie Smith, Parent 2025
Choosing SMSH school was one of the best decisions we have made for our 3 children. It started with our oldest daughter approximately 10 years ago, continues to this very day and will continue for another 6 years with our other daughter and son. While values, faith and education certainly drove our decision it is actually the leadership at the school today that keeps us motivated to be an active, albeit, small part of the SMSH family. We are very fortunate to have a staff committed to helping our kids become the best people they can be and taking a genuine interest in their lives. It’s that sincere, caring nature that really makes us appreciate how grateful we are to be a part of the SMSH community. We couldn’t be happier, but most importantly our kids are happy, safe and thriving.Mr. and Mrs. Sean and Dawn Finucane, parents of 2016, 2019, and 2024
"We have been a part of the SMSH family for 12 years and couldn’t be more impressed with the welcoming and nurturing environment year after year. Within their faith-based curriculum, you will find teachers and staff involved in and out of the classroom. My children not only have felt supported, but they have learned to in turn support those around them. The academics are ambitious, challenging & engaging. SMSH encourages faith, community & personal growth; this is why we love our school! We feel forever blessed for the continued support and guidance in raising our children alongside us."Mr. and Mrs. Glenn and Cara Rogers, Parent of 2019
Our Saints, and our school community, are learning to find and follow God in all things. As children on their faith journey, they become increasingly aware of God’s love for them. With guidance each will come to understand the teachings of Jesus and of the Catholic Church. Our Saints learn to communicate with God through prayer and participation in our spiritual and liturgical community.
Our Saints are eager to learn! They acknowledge they do not know all the answers to every question, but are curious and excited to when finding them. Our Saints imagine, question, investigate, explore, and celebrate things that are new and different. They are willing to take healthy risks to learn more about our World.
Our Saints are students who are learning to think critically. They work hard to grasp both tangible and intangible concepts. At all grade levels our Saints take responsibility for their learning and express themselves through their words and actions. They use technology to support their learning, to problem solve, and to communicate with their community. Our Saints are constantly discovering their intellectual skills and advancing their academics to prepare them for, not only the next lesson, the next grade, or their next school, but life beyond.
Community of Families
Our Saints, our school community, and our families, know that we are joined by other families of God on this journey. Together we celebrate successes and learn from our challenges. Our partnership is sacred, as we work together to socially, academically, and spiritually prepare our Saints to live out the Gospel.
Service and Values
Our Saints, and our school community, understand that every person is loved by God and therefore is to be loved and respected. They work to become concerned and responsible person for other through their words, actions, service, good works, and prayer.
