The Alumnae Association of Sacred Heart is a vital living testament to one of the goals of the Society of the Sacred Heart: To Educate to the building of community as a Christian value It is bound to the past as well as the future. Alumnae were educated in distinct decades, on different campuses, with changing faculty. The thread that binds them together is their Sacred Heart education, and their loyalty to its mission.
The by-laws of the Alumnae Association state as its purpose:
- To welcome all graduates of Sacred Heart Schools.
- To foster a closer union among graduates of Arch Street, Eden Hall, Overbrook and Bryn Mawr through its activities.
- To strengthen and continue the relationships that began at the various schools.
- To encourage and promote the spiritual, intellectual, and social welfare of its members.
- To work with the school’s administration, Board of Trustees, faculty and staff, and parents to promote the best interests of Country Day School of the Sacred Heart.
- To give back to the community and the school through social service and philanthropic endeavors. (updated 9/2012)
The Alumnae Association through its activities and events continues to build upon its rich history and traditions. The inter-generational loyalty of the alumnae is critical to the well being of the institution. Sacred Heart’s reputation as a premier institution has been enhanced by the work of our alumnae. It is vital to Sacred Heart’s future that alumnae be engaged and they understand our needs and challenges. Sustaining loyalty requires that fond memories mesh with understanding and acceptance of inevitable change at the school. The Board of the Alumnae Association is committed to achieving this goal.

A song arises from our hearts
Ne'er to depart or fade.
Forever true its notes we sing
Joy filled and free.
Steadfast in its hope
Unchanging in ideals
Loyal to Sacred Heart, may it ever prove.
Come let your voices ring.
Alma Mater's glory sing.
Shout her honor to the sky
In endless song abounding.
Staunch her children and true,
Avowing their complete allegiance.
Rise and proclaim the glorious name of
The Sacred Heart.
