Overview

Overview

Country Day School of the Sacred Heart says

Country Day School of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls, grades Pre-K - 12. Founded in 1865 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart, the school has been lay-owned and governed since 1969. Sacred Heart has a strong tradition of excellence in education as envisioned by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat. Schools of the Sacred Heart commit themselves to educate to a personal and active faith in God; a deep respect for intellectual values; a social awareness which impels to action; the building of community as a Christian value; and personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom. For more than four generations, the goals of Sacred Heart's educational program have remained the same: to produce self-confident women, to provide a challenging intellectual education, to develop a love of God, and to create a desire to help others. A holistic approach to learning seeks to respond to the academic, aesthetic, athletic, spiritual, social and emotional needs of each girl. Teaching practices rooted in the science of learning enhance Sacred Heart's ability to offer an educational experience that is challenging and relevant.
