Strategic Plan: Vision 2022 & Beyond
The Academy of the Sacred Heart is more than just a place, or even a school. For students, families, alumnae, and community partners, Sacred Heart is a rich experience of community and culture, a formidable landmark of faith and learning, a pathway for growth and an adventure to savor for a lifetime. Etched across our arched portico, our name announces our enduring message, “Sacré Coeur”—the universal loving heart of Jesus. Indescribable. Intangible. Felt.
Beauty abounds at Sacred Heart. Students and faculty are surrounded by its graceful oak trees, wrap-around galleries, pristine grounds and tree-top views of New Orleans. But what matters most is the beauty one quickly discovers in the children at Sacred Heart—their happiness, their joy in inquiry, their quest to explore the world and their hearts moved with compassion for others. Open hearts. Open minds. Informed wills.
Entering through these gates as infants and leaving as women, our students grow in confidence and become courageous Christ-centered leaders who change the world. Women of the Sacred Heart are difference-makers. Incisive. Inspired. Faith-filled.
Our school is a community where girls grow through relationships, create lasting connections with others and benefit from a truly global network of over 150 Sacred Heart schools in 41 countries of the world. Critical consciousness. Global citizens. Friends.
We are proud to present our strategic plan, “Inspiring Faith-filled Women of Courage and Confidence.” Many hours of thoughtful assessment and conversation have produced a visionary and exciting path for the next five years. Our plan is bold, forward-thinking, and realistic about its elegant three goals.
In concert with the entire community, we believe the plan will galvanize our school into the future with a common understanding and purpose for the years ahead. We hope that it inspires and engages each one in a wide variety of ways for the sake of each child. Together, we look forward to continuing our great mission of forming and educating each child in God’s glorious image.
