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.
Spirit seeking light and beauty, heart that longest for they rest, Soul that asketh understanding, only thus can ye be blest. Thro’ the vastness of creation tho’ your restless thought may roam. God is all that you can long for, God is all his creatures’ home. — Janet Erskine Stuart, RSCJ
Two graduates from the Class of 2016 have been named National Merit Semifinalists: Natalie Murray and Bridget Hagene! Natalie and Bridget represent less than 1 percent of U.S. high school seniors, which includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state.
Every once in a while I receive a marvelous email offering the Academy a “treasure.” These treasures come in many different forms—the one I write about today was an inquiry as to whether the Academy would be able to use a very large conference table. My response was a pretty near immediate “YES! Thank you.” Now the only challenge was to get it up to the Theology classroom in Regis Hall!
