Dear Prospective Families,

Welcome to Sacred Heart Academy Bryn Mawr Admissions. We're pleased that you are here, on our website, to explore all that SHA has to offer. We look forward to partnering with you in your school search journey!

Our Admissions pages contain information on the admissions process, scholarships, tuition & affordability, admissions events, and the application once you are ready for that important step. We encourage you to explore the abundance of information throughout our website. Here, you'll find insights on what distinguishes SHA from other area schools, including our:

  • Five Goals & Criteria which guide us in all we do
  • Academic curriculum that fosters intellectual curiosity, confidence, and success
  • An incredibly caring, small community
  • The Network of Sacred Heart Schools and a consortium of Sacred Heart Schools in 40+ countries which broadens our campus worldwide, providing domestic and international exchange programs

Be sure to also follow SHA on Instagram and Facebook at @SHAbrynmawr to stay current on student life, SHA news, Parents' Association programs, Admissions events, and more.

Located on the Main Line, our private school seeks highly motivated applicants who are academically prepared for the challenging and inspiring 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 look forward to exploring if SHA is an ideal fit for your daughter and family. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact us any time of the year!
