Congratulations to our Eighth Grade Graduates of 2014
On Tuesday, June 10, twenty-five Eighth Grade students walked on Jasper Street from the red school doors to the red doors of the church to attend their graduation ceremony. It was a joyous occasion for all. Many of our students received very generous scholarships to Camden Catholic High School. Our students will also be attending: LEAP Academy, Creative Arts, Penn Tech, Pine Forge Academy, Haddon Heights and Sterling High.

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.
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.
