Our daughter started in kindergarten and we couldn't be more thrilled with her attending a school that has excellent academics but also focuses just as much on character. Given the moral compass is developed at such a young age we are thrilled she is in an environment that places just as much importance on character development as on academics. Also, it couldn't be a more caring and nurturing environment that welcomes people from all walks of life. Given we reside in such an affluent community, we love that our daughter attends a school that emphasizes becoming a global leader and accepting all people.

Our daughter is recieving an exceptional education at Sacred Heart Greenwich. The level of attention and dedication to each individual student from faculty and administrators is excellent. We could not be happier with our experience and can not imagine her developing her academics and character anywhere else.
