Ms. Janet Williams, Principal of the Year!!!

Our Principal, Janet Williams, was honored on Thursday morning, May 21, 2015. Mary Boyle, Superintendent of Grammar/High Schools for the Camden Diocese, came to Sacred Heart Church, representing Bishop Sullivan to honor Janet Williams as Principal of the Year for the Camden Diocese. Janet was chosen from all the schools, grammar and high schools from here to Cape May. Janet Williams came to Sacred Heart School in September of 1987, 28 years ago and taught second grade for 4 years and was nominated by the Principal, Shirley Howe, to take over our school. It was a huge undertaking but she had the courage to face it, take it on, and do wonderfully with it. 24 years later, she is chosen as the Principal of the Year in the Diocese of Camden. The parish of Sacred Heart salutes you, Janet, with admiration and gratitude.

Father Michael Doyle

A spirit of Christian love prevails in Sacred Heart School

We teach our students to love God, work hard, be kind to one another and put others first.

Our beliefs:

  • It is essential that our faculty and staff strive to educate and model to our students the importance of social justice and to encourage students to be proactive in improving their community.

  • Parents are the primary educators of our students. Therefore, our faculty and staff must work hard to create a partnership between the home and school. That partnership can provide mutual support for the child.

  • It is our responsibility to push education and hard work as the most powerful tools to achieving a better future.

  • A commitment to the continual improvement and growth of our school is essential for the education of our students in preparing them to confront the challenges of their future.

  • Our faculty, staff and students must be strongly encouraged to mirror Christ’s life in showing love of God and each other.

  • Sacred Heart School exists to create a safe, Christian environment for students to be able to excel in education by challenging and empowering them to become responsible and contributing Christians in society.
