Possibly the best kept secret in Jackson. Our son is a senior and we have been so pleased! This school has a very strong curriculum, dedicated and well qualified faculty, and as a benefit of its current size- personalized attention for each student. Our son scored in the top 10% in the nation on both the SAT and ACT, and we are currently watching the scholarship dollars and honors college acceptances roll in! He is no exception. School ACT scores were released for the senior class recently and the top 50% scored a 25 or above! Although strong academics are an important part of any school and Sacred Heart achieves this, maybe the best part of Sacred Heart is the atmosphere. We send our son to school every day and know that the morals and values we teach at home are being reinforced in the classroom. There is a spirit of inclusiveness that I haven’t seen in a high school before- and while everybody belongs and everybody is welcome to play any sport or join any club, there is also a focus on the child as an individual. The students are free to “be themselves”. It’s no wonder our son comes home and when asked “How was your day?” he invariably answers, “Great!”
USJ offers students a curriculum which prepares them for college. The students have the opportunity to excel in the visual and performing arts, athletics, leadership, and numerous clubs as well as in the classroom. Our four children had wonderful experiences at USJ which helped to prepare them for college and their careers. Our granddaugther shows much excitement as she learns new and interesting information each day at USJ.
USJ is a great school that prepares its students for college and beyond. The school offers a supportive environment and a challenging curriculum to motivate students to succeed. It also teaches students to value honor, hard work, service and leadership. As a graduate (class of 1996), I appreciate USJ for the well-rounded education I received and the lifelong friends that I made.
