Located in Boise, Idaho’s capital city, Sacred Heart Catholic School holds the distinction of being a Western Catholic Education Association accredited school. Our campus can accommodate 250 students in grades pre-K through 8. We follow the State of Idaho guidelines and offer a comprehensive religious education program. Sacred Heart Catholic School has ten classroom teachers, and specialists in art, music and physical education. We have a part time nurse (on call daily) and a librarian.
We offer extra curricular activities to enrich the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well being of our students. These activities include: student council, Drama Club, Future Cities, Science Olympiad, National History Day, spelling bee, The Geography Bee, Micron Math Counts, math festival, scouts, academic team, TVCS sports, and fifth and sixth grade basketball.
Throughout the year, several assemblies and activities are scheduled to enrich the student experience. Music programs brighten the school with seasonal performances. The Spring Fine Arts Festival helps the students appreciate the arts. We also bring in local and national assemblies throughout the school year.
Our students live and grow in their faith by participating in Mass on Wednesday and Friday mornings, Monday morning prayer services, a Seder Meal and Stations of the Cross during Lent, school wide retreats, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and other prayer traditions and devotions such as the Rosary and Crowning of our Blessed Mother. Students put their faith into action through regular volunteer work, visiting homeless shelters, attending Mass with our pastor at area retirement centers, and many service projects and fundraisers for the less fortunate.
Our facilities include the school building that houses eight classrooms, the gymnasium and stage, teacher’s lounge, nurse’s office, library, and administrative offices. Three separate buildings house our pre-K and Kindergarten rooms, Carolyn Flagan Memorial Science Lab, and E.L. Wiegand Art Room and Technology Lab. We have a covered picnic area and large multi-purpose sports field with a baseball diamond, six basketball courts, and playground equipment.
Sacred Heart Catholic School offers a hot lunch program Tuesday through Friday. On Monday’s students are required to bring a cold lunch, or can order a sandwich meal through the Blimpie lunch program.
Our school is very much indebted to our parents who do so much for us. Our Home and School Organization is active in many areas within the school and we welcome their involvement. We would not be the vibrant institution that we are without them.
