Who We Are

Dr. Sally Sharp, Society of 1876 Member

School can be a lot of fun but at the heart of education is the opportunity for kids to learn, explore, and cultivate the gifts that they are called to bring to the world.

Jennifer Bozyk, H7 Lead Teacher

My goal is that my students see that they are appreciated and loved for everything they like and don’t like and everything that they are and aren’t.

Laura Sloman, Lower School Counselor

"I came to Sacred Heart drawn by the clear commitment to values here. I see it play out every day in student-student interactions, professional collegial relationships and in our partnerships with parents."

 

Lisa Paulsen, H3 Lead Teacher

I feel that as a Sacred Heart educator I am part of an elite institution, a place with high expectations for who is here as faculty. I feel great pride in this institution. This is a special and unique place.
