Sacred Heart School is a K-8 Catholic day school founded in 1923. It is a Catholic, interparochial school of the Diocese of Worcester and is sponsored by Sacred Heart Parish of Gardner, Massachusetts. It is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
Sacred Heart School offers a great start academically, but also
promotes the formation of values, attitudes, and discipline that reflect a Christian way of life. There is an atmosphere of caring, understanding, and family. As part of our complete school program, we also offer a Pre-School day care center and an After School program, servicing those families in which both parents work.
Students that attend Sacred Heart School represent the communities of Gardner and the surrounding cities and towns. These include, but are not limited to: Winchendon, Athol, Ashburnham, Templeton, Hubbardston, Phillipston, Royalston, Petersham, Leominster, Fitchburg and Westminster.
Sacred Heart encourages parental involvement and openly welcomes your support in your child’s educational experience. Parents serve on the School Board, on committees, as teacher aide’s, and library help. They assist with our Annual Fall Festival, our Turkey Raffle and Annual Banquet. Our Parents Association was established in 1991 to make a formal commitment to continue this support. The Association develops programs designed to build a stronger school community.
