The Academy of the Sacred Heart values academic excellence and inspires in children a lifelong love of learning. 

Open to boys and girls in Preschool through Grade 8, the school provides a challenging curriculum at all grade levels. Students grow in the ability to think creatively, critically and reflectively, and develop strong study habits along the way.

A variety of engaging activities meets the needs of today’s highly visual and creative child. In addition to challenging coursework in core subjects, the curriculum is enhanced by a strong emphasis on writing, Spanish, comprehensive technology instruction, acclaimed art and music programs, and daily physical education classes for every student.

At the heart of successful learning is the student-teacher relationship. Small classes enable Academy teachers to engage students in active, student-centered lessons that allow them to develop both conceptual and experiential knowledge. Numbers tell much of the story: 99% of our graduates gain admittance to their first-choice high school.
