Welcome to Advancement - Sacred Heart High School - Waterbury, CT

Welcome to Advancement

Sacred Heart High School has an Advancement Office that is committed to “advancing” the mission of the school, which involves financial support, public relations and community involvement. As a parent, alum, or friend you are asked to partner with us in one, if not all three of these goals.

As a Catholic school committed to providing a quality education to all who desire it, and not just those who can afford it, we are committed to working to make Sacred Heart a viable choice for those seeking its enrichment.

What makes Sacred Heart High School even more amazing is the fact that the quality of our teachers, our programs and our facilities is second to
none-anywhere! This begs the question, “how can Sacred Heart High School do it?”

The answer is simple: sound fiscal management, resourcefulness, and an Advancement Office that solicits support from its more than 13,000 alumni, business partners, benefactors, parents and friends. The additional revenue that we receive from these sources is what allows Sacred Heart High School to always work to enhance the quality of our programs to one of ongoing excellence.

Within the Advancement pages you will learn of the many ways that you can support the Heart! “Small gifts in large numbers yield wonderful and meaningful results!” Please know that every gift is important to the success of our fine school and we are truly grateful for the ongoing support of so many who give from “their Hearts!” Thank you Sacred Heart Family for being active participants in this awesome mission of educating our young people in the Catholic Tradition!

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.
