Sacred Heart School
Sacred Heart has been educating North Omaha students, pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, for over 100 years.
In order to serve its low‐income community, CUES fundraises the majority of the educational costs for students attending the school. Due to the fundraising efforts of CUES, parents are able to give their children a high‐quality education they would otherwise be unable to afford.
To provide a learning environment of faith, knowledge, and service by promoting Christian values, individualize academic opportunities, and community engagement.
