The 5 Goals of Sacred Heart Education


I wanted a Catholic school with smaller class sizes; a combination of gaining knowledge and faith.

Christopher H'18, DePaul College Prep


Whatever I do, the Goals put a spin on my life. I want to help individual people and the community as a whole.

Noelle A'13, Boston University


I am living out the five Goals and I will be applying the values I learned over my nine years there and throughout the rest of my life.

Sam H'16, Yale University


Building community – welcoming all people, making new friends. This is an important skill for life and will give you an advantage.

Teddy, Lower School


Every time I’m in public, I try to remember all of the Goals, especially Goal V. SHS sets an example for me of how to act and maintain a good life.
