Who We Are

Jack H'11, Syracuse University

I graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA with an acting concentration.  I spent my last semester as a part of the Tepper Semester in New York City (an artistic training program that allows undergraduates to study advanced levels of acting, directing, musical theater, playwriting, casting, design and stage management).

Sacred Heart felt like my chosen family—a group of people, for whatever reason, who shared similar beliefs and morals.

Clothilde, Middle School

Being a student at Sacred Heart means being respectful and creative. Everyone gets to participate and be a part of our learning experience. Everyone has the time and opportunity to express their opinions. 

Jack H'20, Saint Ignatius College Prep

At Sacred Heart, I played basketball and flag football in the fall, as well as travel basketball. I am involved in my church youth group and we do all sorts of things for and in church and outside of church.

My family and I volunteer at the Breakthrough Women’s homeless shelter where we help to cook dinner and serve it, and we visit with the women at the shelter.

Margot A'18, The Latin School

Being a Sacred Heart graduate means that I put my faith and trust into a community for nine years and they have taught me everything I know. I now know that they have prepared me in the best way possible for life. 

Reese, Lower School

One word that I think describes Sacred Heart is “Friendship.” The ability to trust someone and know that you are not judged for who you are. 

Jack, Middle School

Goal III: Help those who need me is the one that means the most to me. This is the thing you can most put into action through volunteering. It is the easiest way to make a difference in people’s lives and is key to our society.
