On Tuesday, October 1, 2013, during Respect Life Week Blessed Sacrament welcomed Bishop Alex Salazar, Director of Life, Justice, and Peace Office. Bishop Salazar celebrated the meaningful weekly school mass with parishioners, students, and staff.
Steeped in the Jesuit philosophy of forming students into men and women for others, Blessed Sacrament School provides an education that emphasizes lifelong learning, as well as spirituality and concern for others. Our first step is to assure that our students qualify for acceptance at the top college preparatory Catholic high schools.
Ninety-five percent of our graduates are accepted at these top-tier schools. Our small class sizes assure that each child receives the kind of individual attention that helps him or her to thrive in a classroom setting.
Our students develop into critical thinkers, who learn to be effective communicators, orally and in writing. They are responsible, civic minded, and learn to work independently and cooperatively. Our school's diversity helps students understand and appreciate different cultures. They also learn the importance of protecting the environment, the wilderness and all of God's creatures living among us or in the wild. Our students are prepared to make moral decisions based on Catholic thought.
The 2013-2014 school hours are 8:00am to 3:00pm, Monday through Thursday and dismissal at 12:30pm on Friday. Students attend Mass every other Tuesday of the month. After school care is available daily from 3:00pm to 6:00pm, Monday - Thursday and 12:30pm - 6:00pm on Friday. The cost of after school care is $5.00 per hour, per child and homework assistance is provided by two staff members.
The Students of Blessed Sacrament School sing, "Lord I Lift Your Name on High" at the 2013 Christmas Concert. The beautiful show was directed by Mr. Nilo Alcala, School Music Director.
