Accreditation & Membership:

Sacred Heart of Jesus High School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), Members of National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA), and Members of the National Association of Private Catholic Independent Schools (NAPCIS).


Much of our school's success is due to the dedication and superior training of our faculty, low student to teacher ratio, and the welcoming and inclusive nature of our student community.  Sacred Heart offers regular, honors, and AP courses, as well as the opportunity to earn dual credits through Union University. A trailblazer in the use of technology, Sacred Heart issues an iPad to each student for integrated use in classroom instruction. Our students have a 100% college acceptance rate and exceed the national, state, and local averages on the ACT. SHJ students have been admitted to a wide range of colleges, including local and state schools, as well as nationally ranked and ivy league universities.
