Start Extraordinary: The Lower School Experience

A nurturing and personalized lower school education is now more accessible than ever. 

The value of a Sacred Heart Academy Lower School education is unmatched in our region. We are small by design, which ensures that each voice is heard and each girl is known. Our program provides personalized attention from teachers and staff in a community that is full of joy, excitement and steadfast support based on how girls learn best. In a sea of school choices, Sacred Heart Academy encourages a lifelong love of learning and the skills to set developmentally appropriate goals that focus on faith, intellect, service, community, and personal growth. And thanks to a special opportunity, that value is more accessible than ever.

For over 150 years, Sacred Heart Academy has empowered and educated young girls in an environment that supports their development into creative, confident, and open-minded young people. As a K-12, all-girls school, our youngest girls learn from their older female role models. This sisterhood teaches students lifelong skills such as how to work together, how to use their voices and how to collaborate.

This spring we are excited to share with you an opportunity to lock in tuition for two years. When you enroll in kindergarten through second grade for 2022-2023, an annual tuition rate of $8500 will be guaranteed for two years. Our tuition includes our Extended Hearts program – before and after-school care. 

Sacred Heart Academy is a Sacred ​​Heart family. Our Bryn Mawr school prepares our girls for a global education as we are one of 25 schools in the Sacred Heart Network based in the United States and Canada and 150 Sacred Heart Schools globally. We invite you to join our global, Sacred Heart family.

Sacred Heart Academy attracts and reflects an international community, as a school that serves a diverse student body. Representing many cultures and ethnic groups from around the world, our students benefit from a global education first and foremost in the friendships they make while here. In addition, our dynamic curriculum opens our students up to the world at large, preparing them for a world without borders. We are part of something larger!

    We've watched our daughter grow and learn in this nurturing environment where she feels safe, supported and loved. As a parent of a little girl, we feel nothing is more important when it comes to education. Sacred Heart is a special place.
