Our Lady of the Sacred Heart admits students of any race, color and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color or national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, or in athletic or other school-administered programs. It is open to all Catholic students, and to those open to converting to the Catholic faith. Our Lady of the Sacred Heart is not equipped to provide for the needs of children with behavioral and emotional problems, or learning disabilities that require special programs.


As a school teaching the Roman Catholic faith, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart professes to support all the teachings of the Catholic Church as pronounced by the Magisterium. Catholic families seeking admission should support the Academy in this profession, and we expect that what is taught in the classroom is reinforced in the home.


Children of other faiths whose parents are in the process -of converting, or desire that their children should become Catholic, are accepted into the Academy; provided the parents support the policies contained herein. Parents of children of other faiths, as do Catholic parents, further agree that their children are not permitted to dispute the validity of Catholic teachings. However, this policy does not prohibit honest inquiry. Parents of other faiths are asked to sign a participation agreement. Any participation in secular activities that is expected of Catholic students is also expected of students converting from other faiths. These may include civic activities that support a moral position compatible with the beliefs professed by-the Catholic Church. One example is prayer at the abortion mill every First Friday.
