Sacred Heart School was started in 1891 to assist Catholic parents in the education of their children. Today the school carries out the same mission as a Preschool through Grade 12 School in the Catholic Diocese of Lincoln.

Sacred Heart School is supported by five Catholic parishes in Richardson County, Nebraska: Sts. Peter and Paul in Falls City; Immaculate Conception in Rulo; St. Mary’s in Arago; St. Anne’s in Shubert; and St. Mary’s in Dawson.

The campus, located at 1820 Fulton, Falls City, NE, includes various buildings adjacent to Sts. Peter and Paul Church in Falls City. The main school building contains classrooms for the elementary, middle school and high school, as well as the school offices, library, and art room. Tiehen Gymnasium houses the music room and preschool room, gymnasium, weight room and locker rooms. The RAC (Roh Activity Center) houses the lunchroom and new gymnasium used both for practice and games.
