Academy Of The Sacred Heart Photo #1
The philosophy of education in Sacred Heart Schools has grown from the deep root of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat's educational vision. The personal, well-rounded growth of each child is directed through an integrated curriculum that is both timely and timeless.
St. Madeleine Sophie regarded, and we still regard, education as an authentic human development preparatory to a full, mature life. Academy of the Sacred Heart students learn to base their conviction solidly on Christian values in order to effect social transformation and meaningful growth.

The education is incredible and will develop your child into a lifelong learner with the skills to go as far as they wants to in life. It is small by design and each child gets to experience individualized attention from all of the excellent teachers and staff.

My two daughters are current students at the Academy of the Sacred Heart. As an alumnus of the school, it has always seemed like home to me. Even years later, it still feels like home for my children. It has been the most wonderful experience for my children and my family. The school thoroughly prepared me for college, graduate school, and my career. I am excited to see that the same standards of excellence in academics, social and personal development, and spirituality are continuing to be instilled in my children. The teachers, administration, traditions, and parent community are incomparable. I 100% recommend the Academy of the Sacred Heart.

Amazing! Our daughter has thrived at ASH. This school really prepares children for success and builds a strong foundation. My daughter's education has far exceeded our expectations and she is miles ahead of her peers who do not go to this school. You certainly get what you pay for. The single-sex glass arrangement for middle school really allows your children to bloom and become confident in their own true selves.

Amazing school with a rich history and tradition. The Campus is beautiful and the community is incredible. Our kids absolutely love it here. The faculty and teachers are great and the education is very good. I'm surprised on how advanced the curriculum is. My kids are ahead in reading and writing than I remember being at the same age. Even our pediatrician was surprised at how advanced our kids are in school. Highly recommend ASH to anyone.

The Academy of the Sacred Heart prepared my children VERY WELL for high school and college. They graduated with amazing time management and study skills and easily excelled in their course work. As a parent, I'm so thankful for their preparedness but also grateful for what they learned about themselves, about how to serve their community, and how to apply their gifts and talents in a way that is kind, respectful, and always reflective of the love of God.

The education I received at the Academy of the Sacred Heart no doubt provided me with exceptionally excellent academic skills and study patterns. What I have come to value beyond the academic excellence, however, are the "intangibles" I received from being the recipient of a Sacred Heart education. These gifts of the "intangibles" provided a platform for building a character that unlocks intellectual and spiritual freedom, the gift of understanding the power of discernment and relationship in our decisions and actions to make a positive difference in our world. The Sacred Heart experience is to be infused with character built upon the goals of Sacred Heart education, interwoven timeless values of faith, service, the importance of inclusive community building, and embracing lifelong learning. Take a chance, take a tour. 20 years after I graduated, my husband and I took a tour to consider if Sacred Heart would be the right fit for our daughter. We emerged from our tour realizing there was no other choice but the Academy!

We cannot speak highly enough of our kids` experience at ASH! During our school search in early 2021, we sought Catholic education in a small, child-centered classroom environment. From the day we took our initial tour, we were impressed by this school's academic curriculum and culture. The tuition and time spent commuting (30 minutes one-way) are a commitment, but worth it because our children are thriving. Do not pass up the opportunity to schedule a tour at the Academy! Something special about this school community cannot be put into words until you experience it in person.

I attended Pre-Primary thru 8th Grade and graduated in 2002. The education at Sacred Heart in that era seemed to be very advanced compared to other curricula at nearby parochial schools. The school was also much bigger when I attended so I'm sure the campus does feel a bit more somber with not as many pupils but it is a great place. 100% recommend.
