Sacred Heart School Dedicates Academy

Sacred Heart School dedicated the William B. Finneran Montessori Academy of Sacred Heart with a ribbon cutting and blessing by Bishop Gerald M. Barbarito on Monday, Feb. 24.

The academy is named after longtime Palm Beach resident and Sacred Heart School benefactor William B. Finneran.

Finneran has been a strong supporter of Sacred Heart School in Lake Worth. The school was on the verge of closing until Finneran and other Palm Beach philanthropists lent their support and resources.

The ceremony featured the William B. Finneran Montessori of Sacred Heart’s kindergarten and pre-kindergarten classes singing several songs, Isabel Quinones reading a thank-you note for Finneran, the blessing by Bishop Barbarito and a luncheon. In attendance were longtime Palm Beach residents Carol Rohrig, Howard Levy, Nancy Ross and Richard Schmeelk.

Founded on Montessori principles and infused with Catholic values, school provides a nurturing environment for the spiritual and intellectual development of students.

Each child’s unique abilities are honored as they learn to meet the challenges of their formative years with confidence and creativity. Students experience a child-centered program that has at its core a profound respect for the individual child.
