In September 2019, School of the Blessed Sacrament will open a two-campus, one school model. The Lower School (preK 3 - 3rd Grade) will be on W 70th in the current School of the Blessed Sacrament building and the Upper School (4th Grade - 8th Grade) moves to 456 W 52nd Street in the current Sacred Heart of Jesus School building.
While the school will be named School of the Blessed Sacrament, we enter this new chapter in Catholic education on the west side of Manhattan standing on the shoulders of those who came before us both at SBS and SHJS.
With long and rich histories in Manhattan, The School of the Blessed Sacrament and Sacred Heart of Jesus School have each provided over a century of Catholic education to thousands of children. Celebrating diversity, strong ethical values, and a commitment to the development of individual academic potential, both schools aspire to educate and nurture the whole child.
Now, School of the Blessed Sacrament and Sacred Heart of Jesus are looking ahead to ensure a continued and secure future of educating students in the decades to come. By merging, they can capitalize on their individual strengths and combined advantages—and thereby offer enhanced opportunities to students and families, creating a model for success for Catholic schools in New York City and beyond.
In partnership with Katie Winter Architecture, we are reimagining learning spaces designed to serve students at every stage in their educational journeys.
