A school of doers, dreamers & inventors.

At Sacred Heart, we challenge our girls with an education attuned to the circumstances and times in which we live, and we express an exceptional spirit of love – for our traditions, our students, our alumnae and our NOLA community.
Faith. Academics. Service. Community. Growth. That's how our girls change the world.

Changing the world since 1867.

The Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls from age 1 through grade 12 in the city of New Orleans. Little Hearts, for age 1–3, is our Early Learning Division of the school. Founded in 1867, and affectionately known as the Rosary, the school has a long history that is rooted in the spiritual charism of the Society of the Sacred Heart whose mission is "to discover and make known the love of God through the heart of Jesus.” This purpose is carried out in more than 150 schools in 41 countries around the world. All Sacred Heart schools are united by the Goals and Criteria of a Sacred Heart education.
