Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, Newton is a member of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, which spans forty-four countries and twenty-one cities in the United States.
At Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart, young women are prepared for lives of courage and confidence.
Such preparation is accomplished deliberately, guiding students to realize the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical dimensions of their lives.
Here, students experience the transformative power of God’s love for each of them.
Secure in that knowledge, students develop a deep and enduring capacity for scholarly engagement and social justice.
Highly motivated girls of all faiths energize the school and join a community of vigorous intellect, active compassion, and joyful traditions.
Students discover and develop their individual talents and dedicate their gifts to the service of others.
