Student Life Overview

Sacred Heart’s Student Life program seeks to enrich and expand students' artistic, academic and personal development so that their learning extends beyond the classroom. 

Use the drop down menus below to explore all Student Life has to offer.

After School

Most school days, 50-150 students remain on campus after school to participate in extracurricular activities. Students can take a range of After School Classes from dance, music lessons, arts and crafts to cooking, learning languages and playing games.

Special groups like Girl Scouts and Science Olympiads are also offered after school. Depending on the activity, students are given the chance to enhance their creative and analytical thinking skills, engage in hands-on learning, interact across gender and age-ranged groups, increase their self confidence and self presentation skills through performance opportunities, and have fun. 

Core After School

After School Care is offered throughout the year from the end of the school day to 6 pm. Core After School Program activities include peer tutoring, computer time and outdoor playtime. This extended day-care program is provided to our families free of charge.

Fine Arts

Celebrating student artwork and musical talents are important at Sacred Heart. Gallery Night, an annual event in May, showcases student artwork throughout the school year and musical performances.

Middle School students put on a musical each year in the spring. Previous musicals have been GreaseThe Wizard of Oz, Alice In Wonderland, Singin' in the Rain and Peter Pan.


Nearly half of our student body participates in athletics after school. Sacred Heart offers volleyball, soccer, softball, basketball, cross country, baseball and track.

Student Life Special Programs

Some special programs Sacred Heart offers are Schools RockJustice Day and International Night. Each of these events highlights our students' and families' talents with performances, artwork, speakers and international celebrations.

Class trips help students explore new places and learn about areas they are studying in their classes. The 6th graders attend a Ropes Course in Wisconsin in October. The 7th graders travel for a week in October to Alabama for Space Academy. The 8th graders visit Camp Rosenthal in October for community service and travel to Washington, DC for a week in May to visit historic museums and meet with politicians.
