Why Sacred Heart Catholic School?
Our Mission Statement, “To love and serve God and our neighbors, to learn to the best of our abilities, to use these skills to be faithful and responsible Catholic Christians, and to shine forth our faith through the power of the Holy Spirit” is indicative of our commitment to provide educational programs for our students through the life and teachings of Christ. We prepare our students to be leaders in their communities for the common good, embrace the rich traditions of the Catholic Church, and assist parents in nurturing and strengthening the religious faith of our children. Our 8th grade graduates excel in high school because of the strong foundation they receive at Sacred Heart Catholic School.
Since 1910, Sacred Heart Catholic School has proudly served families of all faiths from San Juan County and has built a reputation for academic excellence that is rich in Catholic identity and is Fully Accredited through WCEA, The Western Catholic Educational Association. Students are accepted without regard to race, color, or national origins. Children of all faiths are welcomed and expected to share in religious education.
Sacred Heart Catholic School offers classes from 3yr-old Pre-School through 8th grade.
Class sizes are limited to ten students for Pre-School through Kindergarten, fifteen students for 1st grade, & twenty students for 2-8th grades.
To help with life’s demands we provide a before school program from 7:00 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. and an after-school program from 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. for all grades.
Each year our enrollment process begins with priority enrollment of current students and their siblings followed by students who are parishioners of Sacred Heart Catholic Church & surrounding parishes in the Diocese of Gallup.
Finally, we offer open enrollment to the public for available seats in each grade. Waiting lists will be created for grades that reach the limit.
Before a transfer student is accepted, the principal will review the student’s records from their previous school. A satisfactory academic and conduct record from the prior school is essential. As a private school, the teaching-learning environment may not be designed to accommodate the needs of all children.
Families are encouraged to visit the school to get to know the campus & staff. Campus visits can be scheduled through the office at 505-325-7512. Campus Visits are temporarily on hold due to COVID-19 closure.
