Let us respect childhood; let us honor the soul of that small creature of God who can already make choices of the best if we take the time to awaken her reason and make her use her judgment."

-Madeleine Sophie Barat, Foundress


Welcome to Sacred Heart admissions! We are delighted that you are considering our school for your daughter. Our admissions process is guided by our school’s mission to create and nurture a community of families and students who act with integrity and whose actions align with their values and beliefs. It is our desire to take the time to get to know each applicant, and our obligation to unearth her individual gifts. Whether you are a parent thinking about Kindergarten or a high school student exploring your options, our commitment is the same: to empower each Sacred Heart student to live with confidence, courage, and a compassionate spirit, and that by graduation she has developed the necessary skills to navigate a future filled with hope, joy and purpose. 

We understand this application process requires time and commitment. It is our hope to provide you with as much information on this site and during the process that you feel comfortable and able to make the right decision for your family. The application process is a hybrid online and in person application approach. Interviews will be held online and student visits will be held in person for students K-8th grade. Our events will also be a blend of online and in person, as we would like to provide you with many opportunities to experience the warmth and joy of our community, walk through this exquisite building and understand our vast academic and extracurricular offerings. We also offer many opportunities to connect with current parents and faculty and staff members.

For a more detailed look at our program offering in each division please visit the curriculum guide and the admissions tab that corresponds with your daughter’s entry year. We accept applications until December 1st. 

We are looking forward to getting to know your family and your daughter. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, any member of the admissions team is happy to assist you.
