Head of School Welcome

Welcome to Academy of the Sacred Heart, a learning community of exceptional difference that develops creative leaders of intellect, soul and character. Our unparalleled educational community spans 24 locations throughout the U.S. and Canada and 41 countries around the world.

Rooted in more than 160 years of experience, young women and men educated at the Academy of the Sacred Heart are guided to first-tier colleges and universities of their choice and ultimately become leaders in corporations, communities, families and service-based organizations.  We begin with infants and graduate leaders.

Small by design and consistent with the mission expressed through the Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart education, we focus on each child’s God-given talents and stretch self-discovery and excellence through classical studies and experiential educational opportunities. Our graduates stand out for their self-understanding, confidence, personal commitment to a life of integrity and service, and strong, active faith in God.

The Sacred Heart experience changes the world, one child at a time. We are an exceptional community of choice for those families who are looking for the unique blend of education, faith and preparation for the future that is the Sacred Heart difference.

I invite you to meet our parents, students, faculty, and alumnae and alumni and share in the Sacred Heart experience.  Our way of educating is rooted in relationships that transform lives, and I look forward to meeting you as you take the next steps toward joining a community that is not simply a school, but a life-long way of living.
