Let’s Talk Heart to Heart…At Sacred Heart School, we recognize that choosing an elementary and a middle school for your child is an enormous decision and also an investment into your child’s future. We invite you to visit our school. Come for a personal tour. Come while school is in session and experience it. Be amazed at what Sacred Heart has to offer.
High Academic Foundation: Our curriculums and coursework purposely encourage high achievement in the classroom. Our teachers hold high standards for learning, accountability, and reaching full potential. Students are challenged and learn responsibility and accountability for their school work.
Faith-filled Education: Faith matters. It is the cornerstone of life. We want our children to know and understand that during good times and difficult times, we belong to our Heavenly Father. We do not want their relationship with Jesus Christ to be just a casual one. We want them to know Him. We are a Christian family.
Community Service: Together our small hands make a BIG difference. This is who we are! One of the big lessons we teach is “service above self” and to help those in need. We serve in our community in many ways. In 2018, our school was presented with the Most Outstanding Service Above Self Award for our Middle and Elementary Schools.
Athletics: Athletics and physical activity are an integral part of our student life at Sacred Heart. Through daily recess, active physical education classes, and 18 different sports teams, Sacred Heart takes developing students physically very seriously. Sacred Heart has a long tradition of competitive athletics, offering a top program full of stellar athletes and great coaches, with many of middle school athletes continuing successfully into high school and beyond.
Stability & Tradition: While we embrace some new trends in learning and technology, we still believe in many traditional and research-proven learning styles. We teach the child and not the book, and definitely not to "End of Grade" standardized testing. We have a 137-year history of graduating students who are prepared for high school and beyond.
Safe & Secure Campus: Our teachers know our students. We know who is who and who is where. We are a family who learns, plays, and prays together. In this increasingly violence-stricken society, we offer a safe, secure environment monitored by cameras with a locked entrance. We have a no tolerance policy on bullying.
Affordability: We work very hard to keep our school affordable to families. We partner with FACTS tuition assistance, the NC Opportunity Scholarship, the Parish and Diocesan financial assistance, and our SHCS Angel Fund to help families afford the great education at Sacred Heart.

All five of our children attended Sacred Heart Catholic School. Their education here has played a large part in the people they have become. One of our daughters is a teacher today because of the wonderful role models she experienced at Sacred Heart. It is fun to see how my children integrate prayer into their daily lives – a practice that was reinforced at Sacred Heart. I experience a peacefulness as I walk through the halls knowing that all of the students are being exposed to what is the basis for a happy good life. We are so fortunate to have three of our grandchildren currently attending Sacred Heart. They continue to teach us through what they are learning and experience. It is refreshing to be able to attend their many functions and interact with such dedicated parents and educators.

I am a parent of 5 children, both boys and girls. I have had experience of both American and Scottish education systems, both public and private, Catholic and non-denominational. I also homeschooled for 10 years. All of the above provided my children with the needs they had when they had them. As someone who wants the best Spiritual, Academic and hands on education for my children, I can honestly say that Sacred Heart Catholic School in Salisbury meets that requirement. It has a safe, warm and welcoming atmosphere as soon as you enter the front door. Both school and church come together as a community that loves and cares for my children from the moment they enter the building. It calls my children to a higher standard of achievement both in their spiritual, academic and physical endeavors. Each of my children who have graduated from Sacred Heart just love to come ‘home’ to encourage and support the children who are still coming through. They have such fond memories of how much love and support they received, and I know that they are amazing, kind, loving and secure individuals because of the education they have received. Sacred Heart has been like an extension of all that I could want for my children. Knowing that the community of staff and teachers love and care for them as I do, allows me peace of mind to place them in their care.

My sons’ academic performance has improved much since beginning SHCS this school year. As parents, SHCS has helped us become more involved in our children’s academics, sports and school events. The school activities are very beautiful, for example the Nativity program during Advent. I am very thankful for the scholarship opportunities given at Sacred Heart School. The financial assistance is very helpful for us to help give our children the best faith-based education. Lastly... seeing them pray and learning more every day about their faith is very rewarding.
Mrs. Livi Ramirez, mother of current students, Jamie and Jafet Tavira, and SHCC parishioner
All 3 of my boys graduated from Sacred Heart Catholic School, with all three completing K-8th grades. SHCS established a strong foundation of learning, interpersonal skills, time management, athletics, and faith that prepared them to navigate through high school and now as they continue on life’s unpredictable journey through college and beyond. While at SHCS, they built friendships that will last a lifetime and a faith that will transcend it. SHCS was instrumental in the development of my 3 three sons as Division 1 Athletes, but it was also critical to their development as responsible young men. Every parent should have the opportunity to provide this strong foundation for their children, and that is why I continue to financially support SHCS.
