The following is a map of the Sacred Heart Academy Admissions process. 

Admissions Events

We Are Part of Something Larger

Sacred Heart Academy shares a common heritage and vision with our global Sacred Heart Network. We encourage you to explore our website to learn more about a Sacred Heart education. As you go through the application steps, please feel free to reach out to our Admissions office with specific questions.

Online Application 

Applying to Sacred Heart Academy is Supported by an Online Checklist

Our Sacred Heart Academy Portal (MySHA) will serve as your admission portal now and later convert into your parent portal once your daughter has enrolled at SHA. First time users can access the portal directly from our WEBSITE. Parents/guardians will be instructed to create an account when you begin your daughter’s application. This account will enable you to view your admission checklist and stay up-to-date with your progress. Your MySHA portal account will be updated daily, allowing you to know when your daughter’s admission profile has been completed.

Academic Records  

Available Electronically on Your Portal (MySHA) Checklist

The Release of Records Form authorizes your daughter’s current school to release her records to Sacred Heart Academy. Please complete and sign this form and give it to your daughter’s current school. Her records will be sent directly to Sacred Heart Academy and are kept confidential. Records should not be uploaded by parents.

Teacher Recommendation

Available Electronically on Your Portal (MySHA) Checklist

Applicants should submit a Teacher Recommendation Form to your daughter’s current school. Applicants must submit the recommendation form to your daughter's current homeroom teacher. The recommendation will be sent directly to Sacred Heart Academy, and the contents will be kept confidential. By submitting the request, you accept our confidentiality agreement. 

Parent Interview 

Understanding Your Daughter Through Your Eyes

As part of the application process, parents/guardians of applicants are required to complete a parent interview prior to your daughter's SHA for a Day - Shadow Visit. This conversation will give you an opportunity to learn more about our curriculum, ask questions and tell us more about your daughter.

Student Interview 

Learning More About Your Young Daughter

As part of the application process, applicants are required to complete a student learning assessment once we have received all admission documentation. Student assessments are designed to provide an informative and comfortable introduction to our school and our teachers, while engaging the girls in activities. Assessments will be performed by the classroom teacher during your daughter's SHA for a Day - Shadow Visit.

Student SHA for a Day -Shadow Day 

There is no better way to experience SHA than to spend some time on campus during a school day. You will enjoy the student-teacher interaction, the student-
student dialogue and the overall “feeling” you get from being here. We look forward to scheduling this important time for you.
