Why Send Your Child to SHS?

For over 120 years, SHS has been grounded in Gospel values and has provided an environment that nourishes each child’s God given gifts. This faith dimension, which sets us apart from many other schools, is reflected in every aspect of our school day. Our goal is to provide a place where all students are welcomed, feel safe and are motivated to achieve, excel and succeed.


Sacred Heart School is a Catholic elementary school, pre-K through eighth grade and has been in existence for 120 years. A parish school sponsored by Sacred Heart in New Britain, CT, it is open to all children regardless of their religion, creed, race or gender.

Located in central Connecticut and the city of New Britain, this inner-city school is marked by a strong pride in the institution and its rich history. Its traditions of excellence and service speaks for itself.

Sacred Heart School thrives within the current culture and, like all schools, is continually striving to integrate, maintain and provide a solid foundation on which to build academic continuity and success while preparing the students to fulfill their role in society and eventually the modern workplace.

With class sizes around 15 students, teachers have the opportunity to differentiate instruction according to the student’s abilities while challenging the gifted and providing remedial assistance to those who have not yet grasped certain concepts. IOWA test scores show that SHS students are on average two years above their grade level and are evidence of the success of our academic program.
