Sacred Heart of Jesus School

Education for Life

235 Nevin Street, Lancaster, PA 17603


Welcome to Sacred Heart School!

As you explore our website, you will find that all of our endeavors are based on the educational mission of the Catholic Church: to teach, to foster Christian community, and to encourage service.

With Christ as our center, we are committed to proclaiming the Gospel message of faith, hope, and love as our way of life - in the words we communicate, in the community we serve, and in the service we give to others.

Guided by the Holy Spirit and nourished by the Eucharist, our faculty and staff are committed to providing a faith-filled and caring learning environment that encourages our students to achieve their full academic potential.

Acknowledging and respecting the parents as the primary teachers, we recognize our role as partners in the education of our students and we entrust our endeavors to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
