Welcome from Sr. Guste, Headmistress
The Academy of the Sacred Heart is a dynamic community of learners engaged in the lifelong journey of faith, academic growth and service in the world. Starting at the tender age of six weeks in our infant nursery program, ASH-FIN, and continuing through the 12th grade, the caring and loving focus on each child characterizes our spiritual charism to “discover and make known the heart of Jesus.”
Our educational mission is articulated through Goals and Criteria which define our philosophy, values, culture, and instructional methodologies. These Goals and Criteria connect Sacred Heart schools in 24 cities throughout the United States and Canada, and in 150 schools of the Sacred Heart located in 48 countries of the world.
Arriving here, you come to know us through the portal of our website. Through its many images, infographics, videos, and words, I hope that you discover a “place of significance” and a special place of spirit and life.
