Religious Education

Sacred Heart Catholic School encourages spiritual growth and proper church etiquette through Prayer Partners. Upper grade students take on the responsibility of assisting younger students and sitting with them during school Masses. The older students model correct behavior, answer religious questions, and develop a faith-based friendship with the younger students.

The sacramental program at Sacred Heart Catholic School is part of the total parish program and requires parent participation. Sacrament reception includes First Reconciliation and First Communion in 2nd Grade as well as Confirmation in 8th Grade.

All students will be expected to participate in religious instruction and in school liturgies to the extent permitted by church discipline.


Sacred Heart Catholic School offers each child an educational experience filled with the highest Catholic standards. Recognizing that each child is an individual, created by God, the faculty and staff give our students a special kind of love and support that can only be found in a Catholic school environment.

At Sacred Heart Catholic School, each day is guided by our Mission Statement and our Philosophy. Both remain at the heart of what we do as educators, guardians, and mentors.

Sacred Heart Catholic School’s curriculum, newly revised by educators throughout the Diocese of Savannah, meets and exceeds the Quality Core Curriculum set forth by the Georgia Department of Education, National Teaching Standards, and Standardized Testing.

In addition, Sacred Heart Catholic School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools as well as the Florida Catholic Conference and is a member of the National Catholic Education Association.

First Communion Mass

First Holy Communion is the second Sacrament of Initiation. The second graders at Sacred Heart Catholic School can now fully participate in the mass by receiving the body and blood of Jesus.


Confirmation is one of the seven sacraments in which Catholics are sealed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The eighth graders at Sacred Heart Catholic School are prepared for this special sacrament.
