About Us

The Smart Choice for Your Child.



Sacred Heart School offers exceptional educational programs for students in grades pre-K3 through eight. Our teachers—all of whom are state certified—provide a strong academic foundation that challenges students to excel.



At Sacred Heart School, we’re proud that:


  • Our students routinely score in the top 20 percent on national standardized tests. That’s well above area public schools and it exceeds the national average for all Catholic schools.
  • Our graduates are accepted to some of the area’s most selective high schools, including Bergen Academy, St. Peter’s Prep, Lacordaire Academy, Seton Hall Prep and Immaculate Conception—some with scholarships!
  • Our spiritual life curriculum sets a moral foundation that lasts a lifetime. In addition to organized religious instruction, service projects on the local, national and even international level are an important component of a Sacred Heart education. The school day offers many opportunities for individual and community prayer and students all attend a monthly school mass.
  • We offer a wide range of extracurricular activities, from academics and the performing arts to sports including boys and girls basketball, track, golf and tennis.

    Sacred Heart School is one of an elite group of elementary schools accredited by the Middle States Commission on Elementary Education and operates under the auspices of the Archdiocese of Newark.
