Transfer Student Process


Thank you for your interest in Sacred Heart Academy!  

Sacred Heart Schools is an International Baccalaureate (IB) School Campus. The IB Programme is a comprehensive, inquiry-based approach to learning that benefits every classroom and every student. IB creates critical, creative and reflective thinkers who are prepared for life. Along with IB courses we offer AP and Dual Credit courses. 


Transfer Process: 

Applications are accepted for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors on a rolling basis with most students entering in August or in January. Seniors may be admitted if from out of town or if there is an extraordinary circumstance. Sacred Heart Academy determines admissions by the applicant’s previous school performance, including academic grades and behavioral performance. An applicant and her family should desire an environment where academics are challenging, behavioral expectations are high and community service is valued.
