The Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus have served in the Bronx since the early 1930s, first at Santa Maria School and within a few years at Sacred Heart Private School. Sadly, in 2008 it became no longer feasible to operate Sacred Heart Private as an elementary school, but without missing a school year the Apostles opened the doors at 1651 Zerega Avenue to the Sacred Heart Learning Center (SHLC) that September. Addressing a need for early childhood education, the Learning Center accommodated 14 students in its Pre-K 3 program that first year.
The program at the SHLC has grown to a whopping 160 students in just three years!
We hope that the Learning Center will continue to grow and evolve, enabling more students to experience this outstanding early educational foundation. With your help, we can continue to nourish the deeply-rooted Apostle legacy in this community.
You are invited to come back to the “little school with the big heart," Sacred Heart Learning Center, and see all the exciting things that are happening here. Feel free to contact me and continue to check back here for upcoming events to be sponsored for alumni of Sacred Heart Private.
