WHAT SETS SACRED HEART APART
Catholic and Independent
Sacred Heart is Chicago's oldest independent school, serving the city's children since 1876. We are rooted in Catholicism and warmly welcome families of all faiths in a vibrant, diverse community. Senior kindergarten through 8th grade is located on our historic campus overlooking Lake Michigan at 6250 N. Sheridan Road. Our Preschool Campus is located at Saint Andrew Greek Orthodox Church-just off of Lake Shore Drive at the corner of Sheridan Road and Hollywood Avenue.
A Unique, Innovative Approach to Education
Our approach to education combines a dynamic and challenging curriculum within a nurturing environment. With the support and dedication of exceptional teachers and staff, our students are inspired to achieve their best and be their best selves. Our community is guided by five timeless principles: faith, intellect, service, community, and personal growth. As a result, students graduate with a strong academic foundation, as well as confidence and values-ready to leave a positive mark on their communities and in the city`s best high schools.
