Welcome to the School of Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales!
I am so blessed to have been welcomed into this community with warm, open hearts and arms. As we celebrate the 130th year of serving Bennington, VT and surrounding areas and towns, it is imperative that we thank God for the blessings and opportunities that the School of Sacred Heart St. Francis de Sales provides our community. Our educational program, centered around Christ, continues to provide excellence in academics and provides a moral foundation for our students to be solid contributors, advocates, and leaders in the world.
Our school is not only one of great faith as part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Burlington but is also accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and approved by the State of Vermont as a PK-8 independent school. Our students are able to grow their relationship with God and challenge themselves on a daily basis in academics, fine arts, and athletics.
We continually find our graduates to be in the top of their class as valedictorians/salutatorians, leaders of their youth ministries, class presidents and top athletes. Many also continue to showcase their God given talents as part of dramatic arts productions and fine arts programs. We are proud of our alumni.
I invite you to witness the joy this school is and schedule a tour or participate in one of our many community events. We look forward to welcoming you to our community.
