The Middle School for Girls (MSG) program is specifically designed to answer the developmental needs of young females from ages 10-14. We are focused on finding ways to develop intelligent, moral, independent young women who act upon their shared values practiced through a Sacred Heart education, specifically our Goals and Criteria.
Students are challenged by ideas and experiences designed to develop self-confidence, intellectual curiosity, perseverance, responsibility, concern for others, a sense of community and compassion.
All-Girls for a Reason
The benefits of a girls' school do not come from separating girls from the boys, but from the ability of a girls' school to focus entirely on the education, development and well-being of girls. Quite simply, girls' schools teach girls that there is enormous potential and power in being a girl.
In an all-girls school, the students collaborate, lead, mentor and learn from each other. The faculty has developed rich curricula and methods based on research that shows how girls learn best.
We believe that single-gender schools provide the most powerful, transformative learning environments. Our rich tradition of excellence in all-girls education dates to the founding of Sacred Heart education. For more than 200 years, Sacred Heart students have been held to the highest expectations and have been encouraged to become confident learners, critical thinkers and self-starters. Middle School for Girls and Upper School experiences of an all-girls environment yield rewards that last a lifetime.
