Sacred Heart School stands proudly in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, New Jersey. The school is part of Sacred Heart Church’s mission to help save Camden by bringing beauty, education and peace to the children and families of this once thriving neighborhood. Our school’s goal is to offer a quality education in a safe, caring Christian environment.
Sacred Heart School houses grades K-8, a computer lab, music room and library. This year, 2015, we opened a brand new Montessori Preschool in what was once the secretarial course room in the convent, just across the driveway from the school. Each of our classrooms has inter-active SMART boards and computers with Internet access. Grades K-3 have instructional aides. For our students who need extra help we have teachers provided to us through the Camden County Educational Commission. Each week students have Art, Physical Education, Music and Computer class.
Our school has an After-Care program for grades Preschool – 7 from Monday- Friday until 5:30 p.m. During the program students receive homework help and academic instruction, as well as snack, computer time, and indoor/outdoor games and activities.
In addition to the After-Care program, we offer the following extra-curricular activities: Boy’s Basketball, grades 3-8; Girl’s Basketball, grades 3-8; Choir, Drama, Newspaper, Soccer, and Track.
One of the most important aspects of our school is the emphasis on Christian values that the teachers and staff share with our students. Religion is taught daily in every grade. Students pray together every day and school-wide prayer services are held throughout the year. We pride ourselves on providing a Christian, family atmosphere that welcomes and cares for each child.
As you browse through our website you will see the uniqueness of Sacred Heart School. Sacred Heart is a partnership that includes our sponsors, our families, our parish and our school. Each year our doors open thanks to the tireless efforts of our pastor, Father Michael Doyle, who initiated our Sponsorship Program thirty years ago.
Many volunteers from our parish spend hundreds of hours helping to keep the program going. This wonderful program allows us to keep our tuition at an affordable price for our families. The talents of our teachers and their dedication to each child have enabled our students to grow into responsible adults. Many of these students now send their children to Sacred Heart. The efforts of so many and the grace of God have made Sacred Heart a strong, productive school.
Should you have any questions about our school, please contact us. The red doors of Sacred Heart are open and welcome you!
