The All-Girls Difference
In our unique environment specifically designed to cater to the needs of girls, our students are challenged to learn, grow, become leaders, and achieve their greatest hopes and dreams. Our Sacred Heart girls are scientists, mathematicians, explorers, writers, actors, singers, and athletes. In an environment where they are nurtured and free to grow, they do not hold back.
Girls' schools empower students to become bold leaders
"93% of girls' school graduates say that they were offered greater leadership opportunities that peers at coed schools, and 80% have held leadership positions since graduating from high school."

Girls' schools foster interest in underrepresented STEM subjects
"Compared to co-ed peers, girls'school graduates are three times more likely to consider STEM careers,"
-Women Graduates of Single-Sex and Co-Educational High Schools, a report from UCLA
Nearly half of all women graduating from single-sex schools rate their public speaking ability as high compared to only 39% of women graduates from coeducational schools. A similar differential exists for writing abilities: 64% of girls’ school graduates assess their writing as high (compared to 59%).

All of the teachers and staff are so passionate about giving a global education based in the Goals of the Sacred Heart. Thank you for being a guiding light for my daughter as she matures and grows in her faith."
