Alma Mater

Cor Jesu Academy Alma Mater

Cor Jesu, at your feet in blossoming youth, 
We surrender our souls as you impart 
Desired knowledge through paths of light and truth 
Beneath the shelter of the Sacred Heart. 

You’ve laden us with treasures on our way: 
The warmth of friendships, pearls of hopes and dreams, 
Yearnings kindled for the noblest way, 
Wisdom to guide us with her radiant beams. 

Reluctantly we leave to fill our part 
In life – you have helped us to prepare. 
Fond mem’ries shall echo in our hearts 
Of fleeting hours spent in your loving care. 

And when we reach the shores of our new dawn, 
We will not forget your spirit true, 
That of the Sacred Heart, our love’s bright flame- 
Our beloved Alma Mater, Cor Jesu.

"Cor Jesu had a tremendous impact on my faith, and I will be forever grateful to the sisters, faculty, staff and my fellow students for giving me that opportunity.  I still end every prayer with 'Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You...'"
