Admissions Toolkit – Academy of the Sacred Heart

Help us Grow by Sharing the #AcademyLove 

“Academy of the Sacred Heart is a school that is synonymous with academic excellence.”

—  Jim Brockman, Vice President, CBC High School 

“At dinner, my kindergartener shares genuine, heartfelt prayers and intentions that are shared at school which brings the power of prayer to our busy home.”

 — Academy Parent

There’s no doubt that word of mouth is one of our most successful marketing methods. Sharing your Academy experience with friends, family, neighbors and coworkers is a powerful endorsement of your child’s education and helps us reach far beyond our community.  

In a recent parent survey, 87% of families responded they would refer a family to the Academy. Below are some tools to help share your enthusiasm and knowledge as Academy parent.

Good to Know Info 
 

Parents understand that the combination of educating the head and the heart is what makes an Academy education unique. Our commitment to the mission of Sacred Heart education — the Goals and Criteria — is shared with 24 other schools in the US and Canada. While it can be difficult to fully describe the tangible difference of an Academy education, time and again we hear from past parents that the best decision they made was investing in their child’s Academy education. Graduates consistently report how well prepared they were for the challenges of high school, college and beyond and are grateful for the foundation they received at ASH.  

But, numbers also tell a strong story: 

  • ASH students have more than 300 hours of dedicated technology instruction when they graduate. 
  • An 8:1 student:teacher ratio and an average class size of 14 ensures that each child receives personal attention. 
  • Students represent 24 zip codes across the metro area. 
  • With an average of 19 years experience, one third of our faculty hold advanced degrees .
  • 100% of graduates gain admissions to their top choice high schools. 
  • The Class of 2018 includes 3 National Merit Finalists. 
  • The past three graduating classes to enter university include:  
    • 3 Valedictorians and 2 Salutatorians.
    • 82% reported earning honor roll distinction. 
    • 75% reported earning a collegiate scholarship.
