Every day school is in session, EDC opens until 6p to care for students who remain on campus at the close of the school day. Students in grades Kindergarten-Third are picked up outside the Kindergarten room. Students in Grades 4-8 walk to EDC and check in. At 3p any student not picked up is escorted to EDC. After a snack and short recreation period, students work on homework and are assisted as needed by the EDC staff. There is time to play on the field as well. Our EDC staff is led by Sarah Evans, a graduate of Sacred Heart School, Buena High School, Ventura College, and California State University, Fresno. Several staff members attend college locally and one is a recent graduate of UCSB. All enjoy spending the afternoon with students of Sacred Heart School. Sacred Heart School families may use the EDC as needed and are billed hourly for its use.
Education at Sacred Heart School is centered in Christ and is concerned with the development of the whole child. We are committed to helping students grow in trust and devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as well as to helping them grow in the spirit of prayer, service and leadership in the Christian community. Sacred Heart School cooperates with and assists the parents or legal guardians, who are the primary educators of their children. Along with teaching Catholic dogma, doctrine, and morals, Sacred Heart School maintains a strong, innovative curriculum. It is our goal to promote a school atmosphere that is enlivened by Gospel values, intellectual proficiency, and self-esteem.
