The Academy of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic, independent school that offers students the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and happy environment. Our preschool through eighth grade program focuses on building strong academic skills while fostering independent learning and communication. Curriculum highlights include: three Science labs, 1:1 computing, French and Spanish, daily Physical Education, and recognized Art and Music programs.
Founded in 1818 by St. Philippine Duchesne, the Academy was the first of many Sacred Heart schools established in the United States. Our mission is to educate and inspire the heart and mind of each child to become a courageous and confident leader who knows and loves God, and who reveals that love by serving others. Our graduates are young men and women well prepared for the challenges of high school, college, and beyond.
Congrats to Emma Larkin ’19 winner of our first “Dream Big” essay contest, sponsored by Julie Meyer Swaney ’81, owner of Limelight Events. Eighth Class students were invited to write about their dream job and how their Academy education has prepared them for it.
Our Sixth Class students, along with their parents, participated in a Poverty Simulation as part of the Academy’s Goal Three initiative, which states, “Schools of the Sacred Heart commit themselves to educate to a social awareness which impels to action.“

Where and how our students enter the Academy matters. It matters as the greeting the students receive sets the tone for their day. It matters for the safety of the students and staff. And, it matters for the ease of finding their way…independently.
Just a few minutes ago I was invited in to the Kocs Computer Lab by Mr. Storjohann, our computer teacher, to get an early glimpse of some photographs that were taken by Middle School students who participated in our after-school photography club. I offer a couple for your review below. What our students saw and captured was amazing!
