Sacred Hearts' philosophy statement on the school website (www.sacredheartsschool.net) sums up the approach to teaching at the school: "We believe that each child is born with a gift. As teachers, it is our role to help uncover that gift and inspire our children to flourish and reach their full potential. We believe that children learn best when they are having fun and that keiki need room to express themselves creatively in order to thrive. We teach our students to reach for the stars."
More than one-third of Sacred Hearts students receive financial aid. The school believes that a good quality education should be available to all children.
