School Profile/Successes

The Sacred Heart School of Glyndon is a co-educational Catholic parish school dedicated to academic excellence, faith formation and service to others.  We prepare all students for the intellectual and social challenges at public, independent, and Catholic high schools.

Our fundamental mission is to create moral leaders for the future.

Using the message of the Gospels as a guide, we have created a warm, welcoming Christian environment that encourages rigorous academic and enriching extra-curricular activities and service opportunities.  The message of Jesus Christ is central to what we do at The Sacred Heart School of Glyndon.  We are a faith community committed to teaching the word of God and to giving witness to the message of Jesus Christ. We live our mission by fostering each child's intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social and physical development, instilling a deep love and respect for God, for the Church, and for all people.

Our entire faculty, staff and school community are dedicated to encouraging each student, according to his or her individual abilities, to recognize and to use his or her God-given talents to the fullest. 

We dedicate ourselves to celebrating what is good in each and every child.
