Virtuous Leadership


Education in Virtue focuses on the development of the whole person and equips one to strive for happiness while pursing the good. Educating in virtue is essential for character formation and living a life of freedom and grace. The value of living the virtuous life is that we become the person God created us to be.

Education in Virtue is more than a curriculum. It’s a way of life—the means to a happy life. Education in Virtue provides easy-to-use resources and materials that are developed by the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist and based on St. Thomas Aquinas’ teachings on the virtues and gifts of the Holy Spirit. These resources provide a framework that helps all ages understand how to live a more virtuous life.

Our students enjoy weekly classes with Mrs. Callie Michaels, head of the Virtuous Leadership program at Sacred Heart.  Our Education in Virtues program addresses the needs of the whole child and putting them on the path of a happy life.
