Sacred Heart Montessori

Students new to our Montessori PreK 3, PreK 4 or Kindergarten program may begin the process at

Sacred Heart Montessori

For almost 40 years, the award-winning Montessori program at Sacred Heart Catholic School, taught by Montessori certified teachers, has guided the young child in his/her Spiritual, Social, Emotional, and Academic formation.

Within the community of a multi-age classroom, designed to create natural opportunities for independent learning and exploration by the child, children embrace multi-sensory learning and passionate inquiry. Individual students follow their own curiosity at their own pace, taking the time they need to fully understand each concept and meet individualized learning goals.

Given the freedom and support to question, probe deeply, and make connections, Montessori students grow up to be confident, enthusiastic, and self-directed learners and citizens, accountable to both themselves and their community. They think critically, work collaboratively, and act boldly and with integrity. This is the perfect introduction to an education at SHCS! What better outcome could you wish for your children?

Parent Testimonials:

 

1)  "The Montessori teachers at Sacred Heart Catholic School have truly gone above and beyond the call of duty during the COVID19 challenge, as they always do with all things.  They really care that their students continue to learn and explore, even while they are unable to be in the classroom together.  During our time away from school they have prepared individual lesson boxes for each student containing all supplies necessary for the lesson, delivered to each student's home at the beginning of the week, checked in on the student's progress, picked up the boxes at the end of the week, cleaned/disinfected the items, then prepared to do it all over again for the next week.  No doubt about it...they are truly THE BEST!  As a parent I am so thankful for the blessing of having such amazing teachers for my son at SHCS."  

 

2)   "In our Montessori program, our children are allowed to work at their pace with individualized instruction. All of their academic and social strengths are enhanced and any weaker areas get the extra needed attention. Our daughter loved this environment and it was the very best foundation we could have given her to begin her educational journey. She thrived in this environment, and was given the foundation she has needed to be successful in her elementary and middle school years.  We wish the Montessori program went through elementary school!!"

 

3)  "Our Montessori program allows our children to learn in a caring environment that challenges and rewards them at their independent level.  They are provided with the very best individualized attention that develops their academic prowess, setting the foundation for their future academic career."

 

4) "This school has made a tremendous impact on the lives of my children.  My older son started in 1st grade for 1 year and my daughter stated in PK4 for 2 years.  The classes focused on my child’s individual needs. The curriculum was creative, challenging and fun. The teachers were dedicated to ensure each child reach their full potential.  The foundation that the Montessori education gave them, prepared them to excel in the standard elementary classroom."
