Choosing a high school can be a tough decision. You want to go to a school where you’ll fit in and have friends. A school that will prepare you academically and have many ways to get involved. A school where you’ll feel supported by your teachers. Sacred Heart Academy has it all!


From your uniform to your locker, your homeroom to your club or team, the girls you interact with every day will become your sisters. You’ll bond over FLIK cookies, field day costumes, pep rally cheers, and ID lanyards. You’ll share classes and ideas, dance moves and dreams. Your SHA sisterhood will follow you through four wonderful years of high school and remain by your side forever. Welcome to the best four years of your life!


At SHA, you are home.



We welcome you and your family to visit Sacred Heart Academy and to see first-hand why Sacred Heart Academy is the leader of excellence in girls’ high school education.
