Mount Sacred Heart has a tradition of academic excellence that dates back over ninety years. We continue to improve our legacy through our strong curriculum which focuses on the development of the whole child in both, the Montessori Program and our grade school. We welcome our students at age 2 1/2 through Kindergarten in the only Catholic Montessori in San Antonio, then 1st through 8th Grades.

Our Catholic Montessori Program for Children Ages 2 1/2 - 5 years offers activities for all aspects of the child's development. Montessori is a system of education based on each child's developmental needs for "freedom within limits" in a carefully prepared environment. With its Catholic identity and foundation, the Montessori Program nurtures the spiritual, faithful, and moral stages of each child.
Our Award-Winning Montessori Program was established in 1973 and all our teachers are certified and trained according to the Montessori Philosophy and method. Our program is comprised of (2) fully equipped classrooms, each with a Montessori Teacher and Assistant.
Mount Sacred Heart Catholic School, in collaboration with our parents, strive to educate all children by providing an environment and learning program rooted in Gospel values.
Students beginning their Kindergarten year attend Mass weekly and actively plan, prepare, and present our Liturgies.
Students participate in a myriad of faith building activities throughout the year such as retreats, prayer services, all school celebrations, as well as are prepared to receive Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion if desired by the student’s family.
