A National School of Character

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School prides itself on being a National School of Character. In 2008, we challenged ourselves to complete the rigorous process required for becoming a school recognized for our character education practices.  After submitting a detailed evidence-based portfolio requiring a thorough evaluation considering how our focus on faith, academics and character impacts our overall academic outcomes, student behavior and school climate, The Character Education Partnership recognized us as a National School of Character. We continually focus on how faith, academics and character impacts our students, teachers, and community. Continuing our commitment to character education, each year students create and submit a school wide project known as a Promising Practice.  We have received eight Promising Practice Awards. As an internationally recognized National School of Character, Blessed Sacrament Catholic School serves as a model for other schools wanting to connect character education within their curriculum.

Utah Green Schools awards Platinum

The Utah Society for Environmental Education through the Utah Green Schools initiative recognizes sustainable practices demonstrated by schools through curriculum and facility management.  Our Green Team leaders compiled a detailed portfolio illustrating our green-school sustainable practices.  Our winning portfolio consisted of eight projects meeting four required categories: sustainable practices, sustainable facilities, environmental education, and community involvement.

Our projects illustrated our awareness in action and the ways in which reducing consumption can positively impact our world both physically and spiritually.  Blessed Sacrament Catholic School’s environmental practices are based on Catholic teachings and the understanding of how we respond to God’s call in caring for all creation.  As Pope Francis writes in Laudato Si, “Everyone shares our common home.”

Mission

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School supports the Catholic Church in spreading the Gospel values of Jesus Christ. We view parents as the child’s primary educators in partnership with teachers servings as the facilitators for learning. Together, we strive to nurture the whole child spiritually, academically, emotionally, and socially in a loving environment.

Vision

Blessed Sacrament Catholic School is our school of choice because of its faith formation, academic excellence, vibrant community, and strength of character education.

History

Blessed Sacrament School opened its doors in 1986.  With the direction and dedication of two Dominican sisters, Sr. Barbara Stanek, O.P., and Sr. Sharon Carroll, O.P., along with Monsignor Robert Servatius, and the Blessed Sacrament Parish Community.  Blessed Sacrament School began teaching Kindergarten and 1st grade classes in the parish hall.  The following year, Pre-K and 2nd grade classes were added.

Groundbreaking for the school was observed in June 1987.  Then, in September 1988, our four classroom education center and a main office were dedicated, completing building Phase I. In 1990, Phase II was completed and we moved our Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms into the main school house.  In 1991, Phase III completed our ten classroom school.  Adding one new grade each year, we filled our blessed school and celebrated our first 8th grade graduating class in 1994. The final building phase, Phase IV, began in 1995. This phase included a gymnasium, kitchen, Library and Media Center, and a center for our Little Blessings Extended Day Program.  Phase IV was dedicated in April of 1996. As an addition to our Library, the Learning Resource Center was completed in January of 1999. In 2009, the monumental accomplishment of completing our Center for Science and the Arts was realized by the generosity of the ALSAM and the E.L. Wiegand Foundations.
