We are delighted that you are considering Sacred Heart for your daughter.
Given the recent changes to New York State's COVID-19 restrictions, we have made some adjustments to this year's admissions process. We hope to offer optional in-person tours for all families, as there is no better way to experience the spirit and warmth of Sacred Heart than to walk through our school. Of course, families may elect to tour virtually instead.
Larger events, such as our Open Houses, will remain virtual for all families, along with all parent interviews and child assessments.
The most updated information on our touring options will be available to you when you submit your application. Whether your family chooses to attend in-person events or stay virtual, we value and respect your decision. Our goals remain the same: to get to know your family, and to help you gain a true sense of the exceptional opportunities that await your daughter at Sacred Heart!
Thank you for your interest in our Middle School.
In Middle School (Grades 5-8) at Sacred Heart, your daughter will be empowered to develop a deep and meaningful understanding of self, a respect and compassion for others, and a responsibility to act to bring about change. She will be challenged to grow intellectually, spiritually and physically through a rigorous academic curriculum, comprehensive arts program, competitive athletics, meaningful service initiatives and global study opportunities.
We appreciate your interest in Sacred Heart and look forward to getting to know you and your daughter. Please do not hesitate to reach out anytime.
