Goal 3: Social Awareness

“Schools of the Sacred Heart commit themselves to educate to a social awareness which impels to action.”



Central to our school culture is a profound commitment to social justice and in a multicultural world; it is important that the school prepares and inspires students to be active, informed, and responsible citizens locally, nationally, and globally. Here at Sacred Heart, students are not only discussing global and local issues of significance, but they are actively engaged in making social change, whether that be work on a local level or being part of service projects with Sacred Heart students from around the world.
