The Sacred Heart Fund is the primary way in which our school raises revenues to be used for scholarship assistance, scholarships, and the enhancement of academic, athletic, spiritual, and extra-curricular programs. This assistance is directly attributed to the generosity of The Archdiocese of Hartford, our Alumni, Parents, Parents of Alumni, Grandparents, Faculty, Staff, Businesses, Foundations, and Friends of the Heart. Your support is critical, now more than ever, as our requests for assistance continue, especially during these challenging times.

The Sacred Heart Fund plays a vital role in the lives of our students, faculty and staff. The support of friends makes up over 10% of the school’s operating budget. Gifts to this fund:

  • Support curriculum development and the introduction of new programs and services that are essential to engaging students in the pursuit of knowledge;
  • Expand and upgrade our technology program
  • Ensure that scholarship assistance remains at the heart of the school for students of need; and
  • Perpetuate an environment that emphasizes academic excellence, faith in God, and service to others.

Please be reminded that no gift is ever too small. Your generosity, in any amount, is always welcomed, and your commitment is essential for the continued success of our school’s mission.

The mission of Sacred Heart High School is to educate students of diverse backgrounds in a strong Catholic tradition in order to empower these students to be moral and productive members of society.

Sacred Heart High School:

  • Integrates the teachings of Jesus Christ into every facet of school life.
  • Provides an excellent education for students of all ability levels.
  • Fosters higher order thinking skills and intellectual curiosity to enable students to become life-long learners.

The administration, faculty, and staff of Sacred Heart High School are dedicated to enabling all of our students to experience the fullness of life that results from the development of individual talents.
