Sacred Heart
Wellington Catholic District School Board
IB PYP Candidate School

Nestled in one of the first neighbourhoods in Guelph, next to Sacred Heart Church, Sacred Heart Catholic School is a Grade Kindergarten to 8 catholic school which combines a historic past with a vibrant present.  In the 2017-18 school year, Sacred Heart became an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) Candidate School and has embarked upon a new journey that embraces global mindedness and inquiry-based learning.  For more information about the IB Primary Years Programme, please go to the IB PYP tab or visit​ 

In addition, our caring staff and smaller school size provides a warm, family-like environment for students.  If you are looking for a school with a heart and international standards, consider Sacred Heart.  

We offer before and after school care through an independent provider, GS Care.  For more information about the before and after school program, please check the GS Care website.

Acknowledgement of Traditional Territory​

From the Anishinaabe to the Attawandaron, the Haudenasaunee and the Metis, these treaty lands are steeped in rich indigenous history and modern traditions. As a community, we have the responsibility to honour and respect the four directions, land, waters, plants, animals and ancestors.  Today, this area is home to many indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island.  We acknowledge the Mississauga's of the New Credit First Nation on whose traditional territory we teach, learn and live.
