Dear Alumni and Friends,

As I write this letter, Sacred Heart High School is undergoing changes to its administrative structure. Beginning this school year we are
employing a President / Principal model of governance found in many private high schools throughout the country.

Since its foundation in 1927, Sacred Heart had a Sister of St. Joseph as principal in charge of the school. When I took over in
1998, I was the first male principal to walk the hallways of the school. Now Sacred Heart has its first laywoman as principal—
Mrs. Diane Tucker.
Mrs. Tucker has worked with me for a decade in roles as Vice-Principal, Guidance Director and Assistant Principal of Academ-
ics. As Principal she will be responsible for the everyday operation of the school and daily supervision of teachers, students and
staff. As the newly-appointed President of the school, I will work with the school’s Advisory Board and alumni, oversee the
planned future building project, and continue to provide spiritual guidance and leadership for the school.
At this point in time the President / Principal model will best provide the school with what it needs for efficient and effective
You will be happy to know that Sacred Heart High School continues to plan for its growth into the future. With an addition to
our present facilities, we anticipate an increased student enrollment. This multi-million dollar expansion would add additional
classrooms, offices, auxiliary rooms and an auditorium to our facility and establish us prominently on Landis Avenue. It is what
is needed to help us keep the students academically and technologically competitive and well-prepared for college.
All of this anticipated growth, however, does come with an ever-increasing price tag. The cost of tuition and fees this year is
$7,450.00 ($6,950. tuition / $500. fees) per student. There are a significant number of families (approximately one-third) look-
ing to us for some financial help. Again, I ask for benefactors to help sponsor a student in financial need (either in part or com-
pletely). Wouldn’t it give great satisfaction to know that you have helped someone to receive the gift of a Catholic education
that you were privileged to have had? I do not like turning away families that want to provide their children with a Catholic
education because they cannot afford it.
The Alumni phase of our Annual Giving Appeal will take place shortly. To keep this school on a solid financial basis and to
allow for future growth and progress, we hope that the majority of our alumni will commit to a donation each year. Please take
the time to respond to our appeal when asked.
Know that I remember each of you in my prayers, at daily Mass and during our Eucharistic Adoration each Friday. Please re-
member us too.
