Sacred Heart High School, Vineland, to remain open

Bishop Joseph Galante has approved a plan that would keep Sacred Heart High School, Vineland, open under a revised financial and administrative structure.

Freshman registration will begin Saturday, Feb. 25, with representatives available at the high school from 9 a.m. until noon.

The plan to keep the school open addresses Sacred Heart’s financial and enrollment concerns. A new school board will be established. The Save Sacred Heart High School Committee, a group of concerned alumni, will raise $300,000 by May 1 to address the school’s current deficit, with another $300,000 deposited by Dec. 1 for next school year.

A new board will develop a five-year plan for the school to assure its future as a diocesan high school open to boys and girls. The new plan acknowledges that Sacred Heart will not be receiving subsidies from the diocese in the foreseeable future and that the financial stability of Christ the Good Shepherd Parish in Vineland, the sponsoring parish, will not be placed in jeopardy. There will also be a revised administrative structure in place for the next school year.

The Save Sacred Heart High School Committee has also promised to establish a permanent foundation for scholarship assistance and ongoing maintenance for Sacred Heart.
