Muenster — Sacred Heart Catholic School in Muenster has once again been named one of the nation’s top 50 Catholic schools. The school was recognized for excellence in Catholic identify, academics and civic education.

“This honor is first a recognition that we are a ministry of the church and remain faithful to the church and its teachings. It is an affirmation of our belief that we offer a strong and quality Catholic college preparatory education,” said Sacred Heart principal Dr. Ralf Rondon.

 The top 50 schools are located in 21 states, with six in Texas, and are diverse: large and small, new and long-established, both highly selective and open enrollment admissions and high and low tuition rates. The common trait is a commitment to providing a truly integrated and faithful Catholic education across all disciplines and in all areas of student activities.

“We are delighted to see the increased level of competition among the schools that participated in the program this year,” said Patrick J. Reilly, President of the Cardinal Newman Society, overseer of the Catholic High School Honor Roll.

Sacred Heart has been named to this prestigious list in the past and continues to maintain the high standards that were set when the school first opened in April 1890.

Students in pre-school through twelfth grades enjoy the benefits of small classes with personalized attention, educational excellence, competitive athletic opportunities, volunteer service to the community and Christian outreach at Sacred Heart Catholic School.
