In addition to the thirteen classrooms for grade Pre-K – 8th, Sacred Heart Cathedral School offers a program for children with a variety of special learning needs. The Morning Star Program's goals are to help each student develop a sense of self-worth, respect for others, a recognition of God as One who loves and values them, a sound academic foundation, occupational competencies, social skills, cultural appreciation and recreational outlets.
The ultimate goal is the formation of individuals who can serve as valued members of society. The program, which opened in August 1990, has limited enrollment and accepts students regardless of creed, race, gender or national origin.
Instruction in reading, spelling, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies is incorporated into a functional life skill program. The ultimate goal is to prepare each student for independent work in high school and beyond.
When the child is accepted into the program, a questionnaire, along with cooperation and permission forms, will be completed by the parent.
Admission requirements before registration to the school program require that each child have a complete professional evaluation, to be obtained by the parent, which should include:
Interested families should contact the school office, and their information will be directed to the principal for additional information.
Due to the individualized instruction and resources required, there is an additional fee for students enrolled in the Morning Star program.
