Who We Are

Board of Governors

Our School is governed by an independent Board of Governors, a dedicated and diverse group of volunteers who share a common belief in the value of a Sacred Heart education. Each is wholeheartedly committed to seeing the school grow and flourish. The Board of Governors is made up of present and past parents, alum, Religious of the Sacred Heart, a faculty appointee, and members of the wider community. (Pictured above is the 2019-20 Board; an updated photo of the 2021-22 Board will be added soon.)
