Sacred Heart Academy is an excellent school that prepares students to continue on into high school honor classes well prepared with a great moral foundation. The academics coupled with the nurturing and loving environment make it an amazing school. The only thing I would change is the 8th grade homeroom teacher, aside from that it is an excellent school.
Sacred Heart is amazing. Children are not only taught to shine academically, but as human beings. Every teacher at SHA is super qualified..with degrees and credentials. There is little or no turnover, so you know the teachers are happy. Sr. Linda is awesome. I have a friend who has a child in a private school in Loma Linda, her daughter is in 9th grade and in the same math book as my son, but my son was several chapters ahead in 8th grade. They are well prepared as students and citizens. Look around, most private schools cost twice as much as Sacred Heart, yet don't provide nearly the same education. You do need to enroll early so that your child does not land on a waiting list!
Sacred Heart Academy is an AWESOME school! All three of my children attend school at SHA and I can tell you that not only do they provide an excellent curriculum, but also provide and art, music and computer teacher as well. The kids wear uniforms, which works out great as the kids don't compare outfits as in public schools. The kids consistently test higher on national standardized tests than their counterparts in public and other private schools. Most of the kids from SHA end up entering high school straight into honors classes! The principal Sr. Linda is wonderful. The tuition is much more reasonable than other schools. The one downside you may experience is that it is k-8, one class per grade. The classes fill up quickly....so if you don't get in early you may end up on a waiting list!
