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.
