A love for Jesus and learning

Experienced faculty members foster a love of learning in their classrooms and lead students to strive for their personal best, setting high expectations and promoting a growth mindset.

Most importantly, recognizing that Jesus is the reason for our school, the curriculum at Sacred Heart Cathedral School integrates love of Christ and others into every subject area.

Building a strong foundation

In a classical framework, this early stage of learning is called the grammar stage and focuses on building students’ foundational understanding of the structure of the created world. Our curriculum features the curriculum of Memoria Press, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, and the use of learning centers.

In addition to the core curriculum, our lower elementary students are formed holistically through physical education, music, art, library and French classes, as well as instruction in the use of technology to hone academic skills.
