Introduction

Sacred Heart School is a private, Catholic, co-educational learning community for students in preschool through grade 12. As a sponsored ministry of the Sisters of Divine Providence, we strive to inspire minds, define character and encourage responsible leadership through a curriculum that prepares students to pursue knowledge now and throughout their lives. In the tradition of the Sisters of Divine Providence, we seek to develop a community of faith that encourages students to act with compassion, to work for a just society, and to pursue opportunities to develop and share their God-given talents in service to society.

Sacred Heart’s educational philosophy calls us to nurture in ourselves and in others a trust and confidence in God’s faithful presence. As a Catholic School, Sacred Heart is committed to providing our students with a rigorous curriculum, and responding to evolving teaching methods and advances in technology. Thus, we offer a diversified liberal arts curriculum that includes academic, spiritual, cultural, athletic and social opportunities designed to stimulate individual creative, physical and spiritual development.

Kingston

Kingston is a coastal community in Southeastern Massachusetts located about 35 miles south of Boston. Kingston was named one of the “Top Spots to Live” by the Boston Globe in 2014. The Town of Kingston has been active in protecting open space, acquiring several large parcels as public lands for open space, conservation and recreational purposes. The Recreation Department promotes programs for youths, and is especially proud of its athletic field complex. Several waterfront areas provide access for boating, swimming and shellfishing.Its convenient proximity to Boston and Cape Cod allows for easy trips into the city or to the beach.

Only a short drive or train ride from Kingston, Boston is a great destination for cultural exploration. With over 40 academic institutions, the magnificent Boston Common with masterful flower gardens, fine harbor views, world class restaurants, the Italian-flavored North End, some fascinating museums, the historic Freedom Trail, and a compact layout tailor made for walking, the Boston area is a great place to live and study
