A Catholic, independent, college-prep school for girls, ages 1 – 12th grade.

Changing the world since 1867

The Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for girls offering education and instructional services from pre-kindergarten school through grade 12. Little Hearts, ages 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 “make known the love of God through the heart of Jesus.”

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 and our community.
Customs and traditions that characterize Sacred Heart schools evolve over the years, but the vital force always remains the same: a deep personal love of God. This love inspires our students to share their gifts with others through lives of concern and service.
Faith. Academics. Service. Community. Growth. That's how our girls become bold, confident women who make change in the world.
