About Upper School:
There is a lot to consider when choosing the right high school in New Orleans. The educational choices are much broader than 10 years ago – Catholic, charter, private, independent, public, magnet and others. So what makes Sacred Heart special?

Our Upper School program delivers a demanding college preparatory curriculum that integrates multi-disciplinary science, technology, engineering, arts, math – an education that emphasizes a unified global perspective.

Global Perspective:
As part of the Network of Sacred Heart schools – an organization with more than 150+ national and international schools in 41 countries – we offer a one-of-a-kind, authentic Global Exchange program in New Orleans. Qualified students stay with a host family and attend another school in the national or international Sacred Heart Network for several weeks. Then, they return the favor, hosting a student here in NOLA and forming sisterhood bonds for life.

Flexible Scheduling:
Sacred Heart’s Upper School operates on a semester basis with flexible scheduling – so there is room for small-group instruction, independent study and the possibility of taking courses at local colleges.

AP & Online Classes:
Sacred Heart also offers Advanced Placement (AP) and honors courses – both on campus and online – in more than 35+ subjects.

National Honor Society:
Pursuing the goals of scholarship, leadership, and service, the National Honor Society wants to help students in need. Any student in the Upper and Middle Schools can request a tutor and teachers or parents can request a tutor for a student. NHS tutoring is limited to once a week and ten sessions with the same tutor each semester. Learn more here.

Service Learning:
As a junior, you will participate in the school’s Community Service Program, designed to instill moral courage, compassion and a proper sense of duty in the NOLA community.

NOCCA (New Orleans Center for Creative Arts):
The Upper School is a NOCCA-friendly school with multiple students participating in both the half day and after school programs at NOCCA. Students participating in the half day program schedule all core class in the morning and leave Sacred Heart before lunch.
