At Sacred Heart I learned how to think, not what to think. I was encouraged from a young age to articulate my own thoughts and stand up for what I believe in.

In 1801, our founder had a revolutionary idea: to educate and empower young women.
Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat's vision of educational excellence continues to inspire us today.
Being part of the Sacred Heart network gave me the amazing opportunity to participate in the International Summit in France. I discussed global issues with Sacred Heart girls from all over the world, giving me a new perspective on issues such as climate change.

Learning to love service is a special part of a Sacred Heart education. In 6th grade, I volunteered for Project Cicero and Meals on Wheels. Delivering books to kids from under-resourced communities and bringing food to seniors who are homebound helped me realize that a small action can make a major difference.

One of my favorite Sacred Heart traditions is “K Buddies” where 4th graders are paired with Kindergarteners. Last year, I had a K Buddy named Jacqueline. We read together, played fun games and I made sure she felt welcome as part of the Sacred Heart family...just like my K Buddy did for me.

After graduating, I took a gap year to teach at Kangole Girls Senior Secondary School in Uganda. I taught math, PE and started the first competitive soccer team. Most importantly, I learned to never underestimate the power of what we can bring from 91st Street to the rest of the world.

The 91st Street community came together in spirit rather than in person today for Rentrée, the annual ceremony celebrating the start of a new school year at Sacred Heart.
This 17th edition of the visual art publication, IRIS, represents work created in painting and drawing, photography, ceramics and sculpture. The work in this magazine displays the creative mastery, inventiveness and talent the Sacred Heart art students possess.
If you are seeking solace or spiritual communion, we invite you to post an intention on our community prayer wall. We will hold in prayer all those who are in need of our prayers. Intentions will be viewed by the entire 91st Street community to support our call to communal prayer.
