SACRED HEART | STRONG CATHOLIC VALUES
Sacred Heart Catholic School is located at 234 North Sycamore Street in Monticello, Iowa, and has been a part of the Monticello Community for over 87 years. Sacred Heart School serves children from three years old through sixth grade. Our Preschool Program is certified by the Iowa Department of Education and also provides a wrap-around programming. Our kindergarten through sixth grade program is certified by the Department of Education as well. In compliance with the Iowa Department of Education and the Archdiocese of Dubuque Board of Education, the curriculum at all levels includes religion, reading, math, science, social studies, physical education, human growth and values, global education, technology, music, and art.
Religion is taught formally in all grades. Religion textbooks, as well as methods, are chosen to present the central doctrines of the Catholic faith clearly and accurately. Liturgical preparations for Mass and parental involvement in the Sacramental preparations are an essential part of the religion program.
Sacred Heart Advantages
Some of the advantages the school offers are: strong Catholic-Christian values, dedicated staff, small class sizes, upgraded technology, current textbooks and teaching methods, and parent awareness and participation. An all-day kindergarten program began in the fall of 1996. The all-day format allows kindergarten students to grow educationally and socially in a learning environment.
Preschool programming includes morning 3-year-old programs and morning or afternoon 4-year-old programming. Our 4-year-old program participates in the State Voluntary Preschool Program, which provides free preschool for qualifying four-year-old students in the State of Iowa. Sacred Heart also introduced after-school care for our preschool students in the 2017-2018 school year.
The school, which does not turn away any student because of race, color, creed or national origin, had 145 enrolled during the 2017-2018 school year.
Sacred Heart School has a 1:1 computer initiative with Chromebooks in grades 3-6 and iPads in grades K-2.
