Admissions Process

Prospective students and families are encouraged to attend an Open House. Student, parent and faculty volunteers work together with Admissions to welcome visitors to our community. Schedules are designed to highlight our academic programs, in addition to our wide range of extracurricular activities. Applicants are encouraged to begin the Admissions process in the fall prior to the year of desired entrance. The Sacred Heart Admissions Committee reviews completed applications throughout the year with the majority occurring between the months of October and March.
