A Student’s Experience Should Be Nothing Short of Inspiring

A great school must be ready to serve the families who are enrolled by having a clear mission. High standards, that include the latest technology and data assessment for each student, is not enough. Personal relationships that create an environment where students can learn and grow has to be the priority. Children should be joyful and comfortable in school. The classrooms should be a place of calm, purposeful teaching with the goal of making student stronger. It is clear, teachers are the most important part of any school. Students with teachers who care deeply about them, will carry a love of learning into adulthood. At Sacred Heart, our teachers are what make us special. Our teachers are able to see the potential in each student and nurture them through discipline, special attention and clear academic strategies.

SHS has a rich tradition of educating students who are confident in their abilities and their role as children of God. Each student has the right to be seen as unique and special with a learning plan that fits their needs. Students have the right to be prepared for the world. It is not good enough to have strong academic standards. A great school has high expectations for behavior and virtue in tandem with a passion for exploring and embracing the possibilities each student has for an enlightened future. SHS is rooted in diligent classroom work and we are determined to inspire our students to continue to seek greatness long after they have left our hallways. This year alone, our 5th and 6th graders will see the Toledo Symphony and a Broadway play, serve at a major fundraising event, learn hands-on life skills, visit Notre Dame University and Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit, face their fears at camp, and have many opportunities to perform and public speak; all while acting as role models for the younger students. It is in this tradition that we are able to promise and live up to our mission that our students are balanced: confident of mind, academics and faith.

If you, or anyone you know, is interested in enrolling a child at Sacred Heart School, contact us at 517-448-6405 to schedule a tour. Let’s raise each child to their full potential.
