In light of challenges presented by Covid-19, Sacred Heart will hold all admissions events online this year. Assessments, interviews, school tours, information sessions, and classroom visits will be virtual. While we recognize this is not the ideal way to explore a school, we assure you that we are entirely committed to getting to know you and your family, and to helping you develop a true sense of what it is like to be a student at Sacred Heart. We look forward to meeting you!


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.
