On this day, 199 years ago, Philippine Duchesne and her RSCJ companions arrived from St. Louis to the banks of the Missouri River where they ferried across to St. Charles. Mark your calendars now for the reenactment of this historic arrival on Sept. 7, 2018! #ASH200
At the conclusion of today’s Mass of the Holy Spirit, the traditional start of the school year for Sacred Heart Schools around the world, Dr. Susan Dempf was formally installed as our new Head of School. Board of Trustees Chair Bill Dulle introduced Sheila Hammond, RSCJ, Provincial of the Sacred Heart Province in the U.S. and Canada, who commissioned Dr. Dempf to the ministry of Head of School. Sister Hammond prayed: “May St. Madeleine Sophie and St. Rose Philippine Duchesne support and sustain you.

May their spirits give you courage and confidence in the days ahead.”…click here to read more.
Little Acorns, our new program for 3-year-olds, got underway on Tuesday. The children had lots of fun playing with new friends and learning new routines in the classroom. They read Mouse’s First Day, made a first day crown, drew a first day picture and made a mouse. Each day our teacher-guided centers will focus around one book and different activities will be based off the book.
During this initial year, the Little Acorns program is for siblings of current Academy families, and Ms. Sam Weiss is the teacher. We are delighted to have these family members with us on campus!
