The Sacred Heart Home Educators is a Catholic homeschool network which seeks to provide support and encouragement to families as they fulfill their calling to be the first and foremost teachers of their children. We pledge loyalty to the Pope, our Bishops, and faithfulness to all doctrinal and moral beliefs and disciplines passed down through the Magisterium. We are consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
"As the Second Vatican Council recalled, 'since parents have conferred life on their children, they have a most solemn obligation to educate their offspring. Hence, parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children. Their role as educators is so decisive that scarcely anything can compensate for their failure in it. For it devolves on parents to create a family atmosphere so animated with love and reverence for God and others that a well-rounded personal development will be fostered among the children. Hence, the family is the first school of those social virtues which every society needs.' "
