Sacred Heart Catholic School
Enlightening Minds, Enriching Souls, and Inspiring Hearts since 1879



Our Mission

Since 1879, Sacred Heart Catholic School has strived to be a Christ-centered community dedicated to developing the whole child and serving families in the Arkansas River Valley. Faculty and staff collaborate to establish a safe, encouraging, and welcoming environment where students are able to discover their individual gifts.

We are committed to

  • Enlightening Minds through a comprehensive and rigorous P-12 learning environment
  • Enriching Souls through the Roman Catholic faith, service to others, and spiritual growth
  • Inspiring Hearts through leadership and integrity


Our Philosophy

Sacred Heart Catholic School seeks to offer high quality academic programs which are integrated with religious truth and values. Students are prepared for life in today's Church and society and for leadership in society and the Church of tomorrow through a strong, basic, and contemporary curriculum which includes instruction and formation in the beliefs, values, and traditions of Catholic Christianity.

The development of the whole person of the student (spiritually, intellectually, personally, socially, and physically), is the focus of Catholic education. The teachers, as partners with the parents, play a significant role in this educational ministry as they daily witness to the meaning of mature faith and Christian living. They are selected with care and are challenged to on-going professional and spiritual growth.


Core Values

Our core values sustain the tradition and anchor the dynamic mission of Sacred Heart Catholic School.

  • Enlightening Minds – Through the use of contemporary teaching techniques, technology, and the wisdom of our faculty and staff, Sacred Heart offers high quality academic programs which are integrated with religious truth and values.
  • Enriching Souls – Sacred Heart Catholic School strives to foster a deeper commitment to the personal moral development, spiritual growth, and social consciousness in our students and guides them in transforming the Good News of the Gospel into action.
  • Inspiring Hearts – Sacred Heart provides a family atmosphere which values the role of family, friends, and milestone moments in the development of our students. Through a service-oriented curriculum, we promote social justice, the dignity of human life, and an active life in the catholic community and world.
