Sacred Heart School of Loretto, Tennessee, was started in September 1872 when students were taught in the frame church building. It was originally staffed by religious sisters, but, since 1994, Sacred Heart has had a Catholic lay faculty as its teachers and administration.
Sacred Heart offers education to the children of Lawrence County and surrounding areas for Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade. Graduates of Sacred Heart School consistently enter the public high school system at the top of their classes, and they are prepared for success in high school, college, and life.
Our vision throughout the years has been to foster a deeply rooted Catholic education to the youth of our parish, and the surrounding communities. Sacred Heart School is the center of our parish life and activities. The parish has taken up the challenge of preparing our younger members to grow up to become Christians true to their vocations. This foundation Christian formation is the best education any parish can offer its younger members.
Sacred Heart School has a great ongoing tradition, which is fueled by the commitment and the dedication of the staff, the cooperation of the parents, and the generosity of the parishioners of Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
He who is Light, Life, and Truth is with us.
