Valued Parents, Future Students

For more than 100 years, Sacred Heart School has educated young people, preschool through eighth grade, in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. Today our school enrolls students drawn from all over the Imperial Valley.

Sacred Heart School is a private Catholic school committed to seeking and ensuring an experience of excellence for each one of our students, providing innovative educational materials, and setting a quality structure that will help children to discover, nurture, maximize, and bring to fruition their gifts and abilities.

We offer a diverse and supportive learning environment in which children thrive.


Are designed to stimulate intellectual curiosity, develop critical thinking skills, and nurture the desire for life-long learning. To achieve this, our teachers shape the curriculum to meet the different needs of our students as they progress through each level of learning. The content, techniques, and structure employed in each grade are designed to reflect their changing capabilities and prepare them for the next level of learning. 


Sacred Heart School is a member of the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego Elementary schools in Imperial County and is accredited by WASC (Western Association of Colleges and Schools) and WCEA (Western Catholic Education Association.)


Immediately following the dedication of the new Sacred Heart church in April 1913, the pastor Father Burelbach decided that the children needed a Catholic school. The construction of the school was completed at the end of 1915 and the Sisters of St. Joseph were contracted to begin teaching the 1916-1917 school year.
