Start Extraordinary:
The Lower School Experience

Step through the red doors and start a journey of endless possibility.

Founded in 1865

Sacred Heart Academy Bryn Mawr is an all-girls, Kindergarten through Grade Twelve, independent, Catholic, college preparatory school on the Main Line. The Lower School educates curious young girls who blossom into creative, confident and open-minded leaders.


Loving Community

Instruction takes place individually and in small groups. While continuing to focus on self-concept, development, and creative expression, the program acquires a strong academic orientation. Social interaction and creative play are emphasised so students learn through active play. Reading and mathematics instruction provide a solid background for first grade.

Grades 1 through 4

Inspire Confidence

Small classes, nurturing environment, and a challenging program enable teachers to provide a strong foundation in the basic academic skills and to emphasize each student's moral, spiritual, physical, and social development. Students are encouraged to ask questions, seek answers, and to learn both from their peers and teachers. Project-based learning is used across the curriculum.

The world needs girls with brave hearts and strong minds.

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.
