Where God is always marked "Present!"

Welcome! wE are happy for your interest and encourage you to explore this website and find out more about us.

Our Mission

Located in the neighborhood of Waterfront South, Sacred Heart School, A Camden Partnership School, serves the Pre-K through 8th grade children of Camden City. Sacred Heart is a safe environment in a challenged city that empowers students to develop respect and a sense of justice rooted in Gospel values. Professional educators, in partnership with families, provide a rigorous, faith-based, student centered education that inspires and prepares students for a successful transition into high school and beyond.

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 communities
  • Parents are the primary educators of our students. Therefore, our faculty and staff must work hard to create a partnership between the home and the 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 achieve a better future.
  • A commitment to continual improvement and growth of 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.

Sacred Heart School is a member of Catholic Partnership Schools (also known as “The Partnership” or “CPS” for short). Catholic Partnership Schools was established in 2008 and became a formally recognized 501(c)(3) in 2010. The Camden initiative – prompted by the imminent threat of additional school closures in a city that couldn’t afford them – is based on extensive research and analysis about how best to retain Catholic education’s cultural and academic strengths and best practices. The Partnership’s mission is to sustain safe and nurturing schools that inspire and prepare each of its students for rigorous, college preparatory or technical high schools. The model represents a new approach to Catholic urban education. Five once-separate and parish-based elementary schools are now administered by a single non-profit entity that centralizes financial, academic and operational management and oversight.
