Graduates in High School

We like to tell people that Academy graduates are well prepared for the challenges of high school. But don’t take our word for it. Here are comments from high school administrators about students who’ve attended the Academy.

  • “The Academy of the Sacred Heart students that attend Villa Duchesne are some of our best and brightest young women. These students are leaders in and out of the classroom. The ASH/Villa girls are consistently earning academic honors and are often the first to volunteer for service programs. They have a passion for living and giving. These students are confident, informed, spiritually centered and responsible. Their academic preparation coupled with their knowledge and love of the Goals and Criteria make them great additions to Villa and to the world!”
    — Therese Hagemeister, Director of Enrollment Management, Villa Duchesne School of the Sacred Heart

  • “St. Louis University High students from the Academy of the Sacred Heart are consistently well prepared for and successfully complete the coursework required at SLUH. They are academically curious, embrace new challenges, eager to explore new ideas, regularly put their faith in action and demonstrate the empathy and love that is expected in the SLUH community.”
    — Brock Kesterson, ASH ‘ 89, Dean of Students & Assistant Principal for Student Life, St. Louis University High

  • “De Smet Jesuit is extremely proud of the excellent young men currently enrolled from the Academy of the Sacred Heart. While maintaining an average GPA of 3.75, they continually thrive and stay active at De Smet Jesuit by participating in Campus Ministry, Athletics, Medical Clubs, National Honor Society, Kairos Retreats, Model U.N., and Robotics. They are true ‘Men For and With Others’ and lead our school academically, spiritually and emotionally.”
    — Tim Sullivan, Director of Parent Engagement, De Smet Jesuit

  • “St. Joseph’s Academy has been so fortunate to have a number of Academy of the Sacred Heart students attend and thrive at our school! Students from ASH are very well prepared for their transition to high school, both academically and as citizens of their community. These young women from ASH jump right into academically challenging courses and extracurricular activities. They serve our mission of making a profound impact on the world!”
    — Dianne Dunning-Gill, Director of Enrollment Management, St. Joseph’s Academy

  • “Academy of the Sacred Heart is a school that is synonymous with academic excellence. We see this excellence in the students who come to CBC. These are students who are prepared academically for the rigorous environment of our Honors Program. However, more impressive is the fact that these young men have immersed themselves in the total CBC experience. They exemplify the brotherhood and community that CBC expects from our young men.”
    — Jim Brockman, Vice President, CBC High School

  • “Academy of the Sacred Heart girls thrive at Viz. These students come to us well-prepared, balanced, and ready for a challenge. We welcome ASH girls to share their many talents and gifts with our Viz community. We value the emphasis on academics and character development at your Academy and find the transition to be very smooth into our Academy.” 
    — Sharon Spellman, Director of Admissions, Visitation Academy

  • “We at MICDS are so very grateful and proud of our students from the Academy of the Sacred Heart. They have excelled academically, displayed amazing citizenship, and have contributed to the school community in so many positive ways. We look forward to fostering our relationship with Academy of the Sacred Heart in order to have more of their students in the future. “
    Teron Sutherlin, Associate Director of Admission – Upper School at MICDS

  • “The Academy of Sacred Heart provides a superior academic program which prepares students for Incarnate Word Academy. At our college-preparatory high school, ASH students not only make a seamless academic transition, but have a confidence and a sense of purpose that enhances the IWA community. ASH alumnae embody our mission statement of following the example of Jesus and leaving a positive impact on our world. They are a wonderful asset to our school.”
    — Lauren Cardwell Keeven, Principal, Incarnate Word Academy
