The Sacred Heart Apostolic School tradition dates back to the foundation of the Legion of Christ in 1941 with an apostolic school in Mexico City.
Since then, 20 such apostolic schools have sprung up all across the world including others in the United States, Canada, Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, Venezuela, and Argentina, among others.
Sacred Heart Apostolic School in Rolling Prairie, Indiana opened its doors in the Fall of 2005 at what was the prestigious Le Mans Academy.
Since then, over 100 students have passed through Sacred Heart, 50% of graduates have continued on to the Legion of Christ’s novitiate in Cheshire, Connecticut or to the diocesan seminary.
