Blessed Sacrament School is a Catholic, Christ-centered community whose mission is to educate the whole child—body, mind, and soul—in order to form life-long disciples of Christ who love the Truth, practice the Faith, and live virtuous lives.
Blessed Sacrament School was founded in 1905 by the Dominican Sisters of St. Mary of the Springs. For over one hundred years we have been committed to excellence in Catholic Education. Built on our Dominican heritage, our Catholic faith influences every aspect of our belief statements.
• We believe that every human person is created in the image of God and is endowed with immense personal dignity.
• We believe that every child has unique, God-given talents and is called to holiness.
• We believe that parents are the first and most important teachers of their children, supported by teachers and administrators to achieve the full potential of each child.
• We believe that parents, teachers, and students are called to pursue excellence in every aspect of life and learning.
• We believe instruction and assessment should be differentiated and based on curriculum guidelines.
• We believe that students, teachers, and administrator should be provided with a safe, caring, and supportive environment.
• We believe that God has created us with freedom and with that freedom comes great moral responsibility.
Pastor's Thoughts on Catholic Education
"All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age."
Since 1905, Blessed Sacrament Church has conducted the mission of Catholic Education through the support of our parish school, Blessed Sacrament School. The apostolate of Catholic Education flows directly from the mission that Christ entrusted to the Apostles at the time of the Ascension.
Blessed Sacrament School was built upon the firm foundation of the faith, hope, and love of the Dominican Sisters of the Springs. In our new school building and with wonderful lay teachers, we continue to build upon our sturdy foundation and to strive to be faithful to the mission of Catholic Education in our own day.
Blessed Sacrament School is a K-8 elementary school that strives to educate the whole child: body, mind, and soul. Recognizing that our gifts come from God as a stewardship entrusted to us, we seek to develop the full God-given potential of each of our children. We seek to give our children the best possible education and to form the future leaders of tomorrow.
Blessed Sacrament School is a Catholic school. We seek to faithfully share the great treasure of our faith with all our students. Our desire and goal is to be 100% faithful to the Church in all things. Faith permeates all aspects of our school. We pray at the beginning and end of every school day and before every meal. The high point of our week is the all-school Mass celebrated every Friday of the school year at 8:45 am. During the month of October we pray an all-school Rosary every Thursday afternoon and we make the stations of the Cross during the Thursdays of Lent. Children have the opportunity to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation during Advent and Lent as well. We proudly use the Faith and Life textbook series, a series praised by our Holy Father Pope Benedict prior to his election as the pope.
Enrollment remains open in Blessed Sacrament School. If you are interested in learning more about our school, contact our principal, Mrs. Mary Packham, at the school office. She can be reached at (740) 345-4125.
