Our History

Blessed Sacrament School began educating kindergarten through eighth grade students in 1949. At its peak there were approximately 1100 students taught by religious and lay faculty. There was a unique sense of hospitality and service present in the church community that was, and continues to be, reflected in the school.

In 1971, due to rising costs and decreasing enrollment, the parish community reluctantly closed the school. In 1974, the pastor and a group of parents, concerned that the needs of young children were not being served, reopened Blessed Sacrament Early Childhood Center in the old school annex building. A kindergarten was added in 1975.

The Blessed Sacrament School Early Childhood Center (ECC) grew and flourished, without parish funding, with the support and hard work of dedicated parents, teachers, school board, and the ECC director. In March 1984, approval was sought and received to build a new elementary school.

Blessed Sacrament School has enjoyed steady enrollment under the guidance of three principals since it reopened in 1985 with full K-8 classes restored. The school is fortunate to have the strong support of parents, the energy of enthusiastic students, the love and dedication of talented professionals, and the continued interest of alumni.
