About Us

about us

Sacred Heart of Jesus School is a fully accredited parish school in Wadsworth, Ohio, offering a quality Catholic education to children from pre-kindergarten through eighth grade.

The 280 students are in classes with an average student-teacher ratio of 19 to 1. All of our teachers are certified by the state of Ohio, and we have little teacher turnover.

To accomplish this, Sacred Heart of Jesus School uses the curriculum provided by the Office of Catholic Education from the Diocese of Cleveland. The Diocese’s Curriculum Department supports the mission of the Office of Catholic Education by leading, assisting and supporting the principals and teachers through the development, evaluation and implementation of curriculum which flows from the philosophy and goals of Catholic education.

Our teachers are committed to academic excellence. Many of our alumni have gone on to become National Merit Finalists, Semifinalists and Commended Scholars. One of the salutatorians of the 2012 Wadsworth High School class was a Sacred Heart graduate. Other graduates have gone on to successful careers; some now send their own children to Sacred Heart. Such is the fondness they have for the school that helped shape their lives.

The Mission of Sacred Heart of Jesus School is to embrace and teach the Catholic faith, empower students to grow in heart and mind, and to encourage students to make a positive difference in the world.

What makes Sacred Heart School special? What is our differentiating value proposition?

That is the question parents of prospective students ask, and answering it is the goal of this website. We invite you to explore all that Sacred Heart of Jesus has to offer. Reflect on the importance of providing your child not only with a sound education but also with a solid moral compass with which to guide his or her decisions.

We welcome the chance to discuss your child’s future with you and to answer any questions you have. We invite you to call us, come in for a tour and see for yourself what we’re all about.

Our excellence begins with our culture.
