Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome to Sacred Heart Academy Bryn Mawr Admissions! We are delighted that you are considering SHA and excited to begin this journey with your family! You will soon find that SHA is a very special community where girls and young women find their voice, their confidence, and their friends for life.

At SHA, we seek highly motivated applicants who are academically prepared for the challenging curriculum, whose talents and intellectual curiosity will enable them to take advantage of vast opportunities, and who demonstrate respect for differences and compassion for all.

We are excited to welcome students and parents to our campus for our Admissions Events including our Red & White Breakfast on the Hill (Open House events) so that you can experience the warmth and welcome of our amazing community. For your convenience, we also host Virtual Information Sessions specific to each division of the school throughout the year.

I joined the Sacred Heart Academy community in 2009 as a parent when my daughter began her Lower School education. Over the years, SHA became home to my family and in 2018, I joined the Admissions Office as Director of Enrollment Management. I hope that the love and excitement I have for SHA shines through in all that we share with you.

Director of Enrollment Management

What Makes SHA Unique

Our class sizes are intentionally small to ensure that each voice is heard, and each girl is known. Our caring faculty inspire students to think creatively beyond constraints, believe they can achieve greatness, and advocate for themselves and others. Our students experience the benefits of a unique sisterhood that develops organically, from Kindergarten through Grade 12, and results in lifelong mentorships and friendships.

Your Admissions Portal

Our Sacred Heart Academy MySHA Portal will serve as your admissions portal now, and later convert into your parent portal once your daughter has enrolled at SHA.

First time users: Create your SHA portal (right) which will enable you to view your Admissions Checklist and stay up to date with your progress. This checklist will also provide access to send requests for all required documents.

Your portal account will be updated daily, allowing you to know when your daughter’s admission profile has been completed.
