Sacred Heart School, founded in 1953 and originally staffed by the Benedictine Sisters, is a TK - 8 Catholic parish elementary school located in Covina, California. Learn more about our school at


The central focus of Sacred Heart School is our belief in God and in the principles of the Catholic faith. We are dedicated to living the Gospel message through the formation of community and the practice of Christian ministry. We are committed to teaching that honesty, respect for life, peaceful resolutions, and love are essential traits of Christian living. These traits sustain the teaching of the Gospel and support students in making positive choices in an ever-changing world. Our goal is that students will value Christ’s presence within themselves and that through Christian service, worship and a commitment to building community, they will serve God and one another.


Sacred Heart School recognizes that parents are the primary educators of their children. In partnership with them, we offer a varied and engaging program that emphasizes the spiritual, intellectual, social and developmental growth of each child. We embrace the responsibility to provide a rich learning environment for all students that promotes academic excellence for everyone.


We strive to instill Catholic values by teaching that God is loving and kind, providing religious experiences that enable each individual to grow closer to God, encouraging each child to discover and utilize his or her God-given talents, and fostering a learning atmosphere that promotes positive self-worth. We recognize education as a life-long process, and we strive to prepare children for the journey.
