Country Day School of the Sacred Heart is a selective,Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls, grades Pre-K - 12.
Founded in 1865 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart, the school has been lay-owned and governed since 1969.
Sacred Heart has a strong tradition of excellence in education as envisioned by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat.
Schools of the Sacred Heart commit themselves to educate to a personal and active faith in God; a deep respect for intellectual values; a social awareness which impels to action; the building of community as a Christian value; and personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.
For more than four generations, the goals of Sacred Heart's educational program have remained the same: to produce self-confident women, to provide a rigorous, relevant  education, to develop a love of God, and to create a desire to help others.
A holistic approach to learning seeks to respond to the academic, aesthetic, athletic, spiritual, social, and emotional needs of each girl.
Sacred Heart offers a traditional approach to education taught in contemporary ways.
