Central to a Sacred Heart education is the active development of students' leadership skills. Students exercise leadership in a variety of forms and settings, practicing self-discipline, responsibility and wise decision-making.
In Primary and Lower School, examples include choice time and iDecide. Both give students ownership of their learning and age-appropriate levels of independence. Middle school students may be leading conferences, organizing social justice initiatives, and team-building on the athletic fields. In Upper School, all students participate in the School Community Governance (SCG) program, working in small groups to practice organization and management skills while developing interest-based programs and activities.
Sacred Heart students become leaders of conscience - lifelong learners who are confident and courageous citizens of the world, eager to share their knowledge and gifts with others.
