Whether you are a first-time visitor to our site, a current student, an alumna, a prospective parent, or friend of the Academy, it is with great joy that I welcome you to our website and to the SHA community. I hope you take the time to peruse our pages to explore the life of a SHA woman and the SHA experience!

Since 1946, Sacred Heart Academy has enjoyed a rich tradition of academic rigor, a wide variety of cocurricular activities, strong athletics, and a school culture steeped in the charism of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

True to our motto, "Excelsior—Ever Higher!" the Sacred Heart Academy student is challenged each day to use her God-given talents to explore, discover, create, and succeed. It is my hope that as each student continues her education and finds her place in the world, she will share her love of learning and compassion for others with everyone she meets.

Beyond our dedication to education, Sacred Heart Academy is a community made up of an outstanding faculty and staff, dedicated parents, more than 500 talented and gifted young women, and over 6,500 alumnae. As the first president of Sacred Heart Academy and an alumna from the Class of 1971, I feel especially blessed to be a part of such a close-knit community. Where will you take your place?
