Noonan Elementary Academy
Open to children three years of age through eighth grade
Noonan Elementary Academy is a private independent school, with a Catholic curriculum, operated by lay Catholics who are loyal to the Pope and adhere to the Churchs doctrinal content as taught in the new Catechism.
The Academy addresses the spiritual, educational and social needs of children because it believes that all education should lead to and culminate in, the knowledge and love of God.
The schools mission is to support parents by providing their children with challenging academics, forming strong moral characters and promoting vibrant spiritual lives.
THE ACADEMYS MISSION:
Noonan Elementary Academy strives TO TEACH, TO EDUCATE AND TO FORM each student. The teachers are committed to contributing to each childs intellectual and Christian maturity. A students heart and aesthetic faculties need to be educated, with a love for authentic values, with a sense of what is good, right, noble, just and beautiful. Every subject must contribute to this enrichment of the person in addition to the retention of facts and figures. Noonan Elementary Academys education goes beyond knowledge to the admiration of what is true, good and beautiful. It is also essential that truths and values be put into action. To reach maturity the student must have sufficient self-mastery to form character. The student will acquire a sense of responsibility, the ability to give oneself to others in service, integrity in word and deed, and perseverance in difficult tasks.
TO TEACH: Teachers impart truth; the students study, analyze, and build upon those truths. The Academy believes that truth is the foundation of knowledge from which all other learning flows.
TO EDUCATE: Also essential is the education of the heart and imagination. The Academy helps students form their personal view of the world, of nature and of man in harmony with the finest of human and spiritual values. In creating lovely objects, through listening to music, and by reading fine books, students are led to appreciate the beautiful, the noble, and the just.
TO FORM: From parent to student and from teacher to student, the love for human values is passed through example. Constant concern for justice, fidelity to ones word, good manners and moderation in speech, and personal responsibility for ones actions are the goals of formation of character, where the human person stands at the center of our endeavor.

Top 50 Schools:
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy sees each student as a precious gift from God whose eternal goal is Heaven. We direct all of our actions to the greater glory of God and to training our students to recognize and follow His will in a superior academic environment.
We profess our faith in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. We seek to preserve and pass on Her immutable truths in loyalty and devotion to the Holy See. A traditional and thorough catechesis in the Faith cultivates a love for Jesus Christ and His Church, while inspiring a desire to follow His commands in service to others.
We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children whose right and duty to educate cannot be replaced, delegated or usurped. The school is the extension of this Gospel witness in the home.
We believe academic excellence, based on a traditional classical education, produces individuals who are equipped to preserve their intellectual independence through knowledge of objective truth, sound reasoning, clarity of thought and thorough character formation.
We believe our teachers have a great responsibility and privilege to teach each student by example and to foster a love of learning through daily interaction with students in a well - disciplined and nurturing environment.
We place this apostolate in the loving hands of Our Lord and His most blessed Mother, under the title, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart. We earnestly pray that the Holy Spirit will guide this endeavor as we seek "to restore all things in Christ."The mission of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy is to direct our students to discover their true vocations - to serve God and His Church in this life and to prepare for eternal life.
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy is dedicated to this goal in the following ways:
- By forming the will of the student to a conscious and deliberate decision to seek the will of God and do it.
- By forming the intellect, pursuing excellence from the very beginning of the disciplines of a classical education.
- By forming the character through the daily practice of the virtues and rooting the personality in daily prayers and the frequent reception of the sacraments.
We teach by precept and example, confident that the tested methods of traditional education and the sure teaching of the Magisterium will give children the training they need to serve God and inspire in them the desire to do so.
