Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy
  • Rockford, IL, USA

Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy is committed to the philosophy of educating the whole person through the formation of the will, the intellect and the character in the light of the Catholic faith. Each student is seen as a precious gift from God whose eternal goal is Heaven. We direct all of our actions to the greater glory of God, and to training our students to recognize and follow his will in a challenging academic environment rooted in the classical liberal arts tradition. This education exposes students to the good, the true and the beautiful, and is designed to form individuals free from the political agendas and opinions of others, free to make correct judgments and decisions based on objective truth and a properly formed conscience.  

 

Mission 

To Jesus through Mary, we aim to form saints and leaders rooted in the immutable truths of the Catholic faith, appreciative of their Western heritage and religious traditions, in particular the extraordinary form of the Mass and the ancient sacred music of the Church, and inspired to bear witness to others of the Hope that is within them.  We challenge each student to pursue perfection in holiness and excellence in academics as we strive to rebuild the culture through truth, faith and service.      

 

We strive to produce the “true Christian… the supernatural man who thinks and acts constantly and consistently in accordance with right reason illumined by the supernatural light of the example and teaching of Christ” (Pope Pius XI, Christian Education of Youth). The goal of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy is to lead students to a knowledge and love of God. We direct all our actions toward the honor and glory of God through the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
