Upper School


Cultivating brave hearts, independent minds and global citizens.

The teenage years of a girl’s life are a time for learning about herself and the world around her. In the Upper School at Sacred Heart Academy Bryn Mawr we truly educate the whole girl providing an environment where she grows academically, spiritually, socially, and emotionally. We offer opportunities for service learning, student leadership and personal growth. We challenge her to be her best self and to use her gifts to become an influential contributor to the world.

Brave hearts. Bold learning. Meaningful connections.

A Sacred Heart Education allows a girl to express herself freely and to develop her own interests. She graduates with a self-confidence that grows from lively, informed discussions in an all-girls classroom, numerous opportunities to take the lead, and involvement in sports, theater and clubs. A Sacred Heart Education emphasizes the academic and personal qualities that lead to long-term success and fulfillment in her future. At graduation when she exits through the Red Doors for the last time, a Sacred Heart graduate is fully prepared for life.
