Building on Excellence

In the spring of 2011, Sr. Sheila O'Neill, ASCJ, Ph.D., '71 initiated the Building on Excellence plan, a blueprint for improvement in all aspects of Sacred Heart Academy life. Last year, as the Academy celebrated 65 years of dedication to the motto Excelsior, the SHA community was looking forward to the future as much as it was giving thanks for a bounty of blessings over a number of decades.
