Welcome to Upper School Admissions at Sacred Heart! The Upper School consists of 9th grade - 12th grade, we accept applications for 9th and 10th grades, with case by case exceptions made for 11th grade. 9th grade is the main entrance year and one of the biggest intake of new students in the school. We welcome students from all five boroughs of NYC, New Jersey, Westchester and Long Island. The Upper School experience provides students with critical discourse, experiences and self discovery to help impact their community and empower them with resilience, ethical discernment and confidence. Vibrant offerings of visual and performing arts, sports and community service complement individually customized curriculum across a range of disciplines, encouraging students to explore their interests and grow as leaders. 

There are two paths to admission for 9th grade students, general admissions and Sacred Heart Scholarship Applicants. Please see the details and timing associated with both processes below. During the admissions process applicant parents and students are interviewed virtually by a member of the admissions team and a member of the Upper School Faculty, they are also invited to attend a one-on-one tour of the school in person. More details regarding testing requirements can be found below. 

We will also offer many in person and virtual events to help you learn more about many aspects of the school. We know that attending many events during the admissions season can feel overwhelming, please know that your attendance is always welcomed but optional.
