History of Sacred Heart Catholic School of Cainta

The Sacred Heart Catholic School of Cainta was established on December 8, 1982 by Rev.Fr. Moises Maramba, a Diocesan priest of Antipolo. 

For some time, the school was named Light Child Care Center (LCCC) that catered to pre-school children. With its primary goal, to serve the underprivileged children of the neighbouring communities of Brookside Hills Subdivision, Cainta, Rizal.

Light Child Care Center survived through the generosity of the benefactors. Different fund raising activities were held to generate funds that would finance its maintenance.

When Fr. Moises left for the USA, the centre was managed by Board of Trustees until 1995. The following year, the centre, which was a small, old structure with one classroom, was turned over to the Diocese of Antipolo under the Most. Rev. Protacio Gungon, D.D. Bishop of Antipolo in 1997. Sr. Mary Celeste M. Perez, OSB, was appointed to manage and supervise the school.

Rev Msgr. Mariano T. Balbago, Jr. then the Parish Priest of Our Lady of Light, and President of Cainta Catholic College changed light Child Care Center’s name to Sacred Heart Catholic School of Cainta to synchronized with the name of the Parish in Brookside which is Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish

The concerted effort of the new management paved the way to the opening of the Grade One class. Thereafter, one grade level was added every year. In 2001, the school had graduated its first batch of Grade Six pupils.      An increasing number of enrolees prompted Sr. Celeste to initiate the construction of a new building for the Secondary Course. School year 2003-2004 was the birth of the first batch of First Year High School with Twenty Six students.

In 2005, the school acquired the lot in front of the old building, and the construction of the three-story building started.

Since School Year 2003-2004, this new building has become the High School Department and other key offices.

In the year 2006-2007, DepEd issued a certificate of Government Recognition for a Complete Secondary Course. The following year, 20082009 the Elementary course was also granted the Government Recognition by the DepEd. 

Since then, Sacred Heart Catholic School of Cainta offered complete Basic Education Course.

The year 2013 was another milestone for SHCSC. The certification of (FAPE) Fund Assistance for Private Education (ESC-FAPE ) Certification. This program of the government provides the present and succeeding Grade 7 students a certain monetary subsidy or partial scholarship, until these concerned students graduated the Secondary Course.

Another breakthrough was added to the school’s history on SY 2015-2016. During this year the school was granted the Certification from the Department of Education to offer the Senior High School Program with the Academic Tracks ABM (Accountancy, Business and Management) and GAS (General Academic Strand). By SY 2016-2017, SHCSC had its first batch of Grade 11 students in both ABM and GAS. SHCSC was also granted permit to offer additional strand HUMSS (Humanities and Social Sciences) on June 2019.
