Message from the President - Sacred Heart High School - Waterbury, CT

Message from the President

Dear Friends of Sacred Heart,

In the heart of Waterbury, there is a Catholic faith high school whose student body mirrors the community’s rich cultural uniqueness and whose roots run nearly as deep. Sacred Heart High School, a Catholic faith community, was established in 1922 with a mission to empower students to reach their fullest potential in Academic Excellence, Spiritual Development, and Social Dynamics.

Every aspect of life at Sacred Heart, academics, athletics, extra-curricular activities, and community service programs is informed and enriched by a strong sense of faith and a focus on helping those in need. Sacred Heart is a very special family where administrators, teachers, parents, and alumni provide invaluable support. The quality of a Sacred Heart education is not merely the result of an outstanding curriculum, but that of a dynamic, nurturing learning environment that emphasizes Catholic values and promotes individual growth and success.

Ninety-eight percent of Sacred Heart graduates go on to attend the area’s finest colleges and universities. Last year, over $2.4 million in college scholarships were awarded to members of the graduating class. This figure speaks volumes for Sacred Heart’s Advanced Placement, Honors, and College Preparatory courses, whose rigorous standards and rewarding challenges help pave the way for students’ success in college and beyond.

As a Catholic high school, Sacred Heart encourages students to go forth into neighboring communities and undertake charitable work. Sacred Heart students answer the call with tremendous enthusiasm by applying their talents with a keen sense of perspective and purpose. Students and faculty work hand in hand on behalf of Relay for Life, St. Mary’s Hospital, St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen and Shelter, food collections, winter coat drives, and many other worthy causes. At Sacred Heart High School, “Life Lessons Inspire Leadership”.

Thank you for your interest in Sacred Heart High School. Please know that my door is always open to answer any questions you may have about our dear Sacred Heart. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus continue to bless you and your family in the days ahead.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Eileen M. Regan ’78, President

It was the four year experience that solidified Dionne’s (and my own) appreciation of how special Sacred Heart High School truly is. SHHS is a place where traditions of excellence are embedded in every facet of the school.
