Student Life

Before-Care Program

For the convenience of SHJ families, we offer a Before-Care Program for Early Preschool through 6th grade students. The program is open from 7:00am to 8:00am every school day.

Before-Care activities often include time outdoors, art, and creative play. A daily snack is provided to each student.

Families interested in utilizing the before-school program are asked to contact the Early Learning Center Director for more information and to inquire about tuition rates.

After-Care Program

The SHJ After-Care Program serves students ranging from Early Preschool through 6th grade. We provide a structured, secure, and loving atmosphere with developmentally appropriate classroom activities that foster a positive self-image, mutual respect, responsibility, and cooperation.

Each child is required to begin the After-Care Program each day by first completing their homework. They may take part in other classroom activities when their homework is completed. Staff is available to offer some homework assistance. They are unable to “tutor” children on a one-to-one basis.

Other classroom activities include time outdoors, art, and creative play. We also accommodate for extra-curricular activities. A daily snack is provided to each student.

If you are interested in having your child participate in the After-Care Program, please contact the Early Learning Center Director for more information and to inquire about tuition rates.

SHJ Athletics Program

Mention Sacred Heart of Jesus School around Boulder and you will hear stories about SHJ athletics dating back to the 1950’s. Renowned far and wide, our school’s athletic program teaches students to play fair, respect all participants, win and lose graciously, build skills at all ability levels and develop a lifetime interest in physical activity. It has also helped several graduates earn college athletic scholarships.

Basketball, baseball and volleyball have been played since the beginning years of the school. Softball and track were added over the years and three years ago cross country joined the competitive athletics program. Students in grades 3 through 8 may participate. There is no fee. A hallmark of SHJ athletics: No tryouts. Every student who wants to participate is on a team.

If you have questions or want more information on the SHJ Athletics Program, please visit our website at www.shjsports.org or email us at ad@shjboulder.org.
