Since 1880, Newton Country Day has educated girls to be strong leaders in a global society.
The school`s mission is rooted in the vision of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, who established schools of the Sacred Heart in 1800 to prepare young women with the courage and confidence to transform the world. The school offers a program for girls of all faiths in grades 5-12, with courses through the AP level.
Dedicated faculty promote a dynamic learning environment that encourages each girl to develop her talents and character, whether on campus or learning remotely.
Through the international Network of Sacred Heart Schools, students take advantage of service trips and curricular exchanges across five continents.
Rigorous academics, performing and visual arts, and interscholastic sports build a vibrant school community, while social justice and service enrich each student`s experience.
Girls are accepted to the most competitive colleges and universities with the goal of living meaningful and joyous lives. Please visit
