About the Academy

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.

We traveled south to Cuba to enjoy the sights, sounds and flavors of Havana as we connected with friends and members of the Academy family on May 4 at our annual Chemin de Fer auction.

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.

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.

Today Mrs. Renken and I had the opportunity to conduct an ‘exit’ interview with the members of the Eighth Class. These students, soon to be our newest alumni, offered rich reflections on their Academy experiences. They shared observations that included what they most valued about their time here as well as valuable insight into areas and opportunities for our growth and enrichment.
