Thank you for your interest in Sacred Heart Academy.

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.

Math and English/Language Arts Teacher Recommendations 

Available Electronically on Your Portal (MySHA) Checklist

Applicants should submit Teacher Recommendation Forms (to your daughter’s current school). Applicants must submit the recommendation form to both your daughter's current english teacher and current math teacher. The recommendations will be sent directly to Sacred Heart Academy, and their contents will be kept confidential. By submitting the request, you accept the 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/Assessment 

Learning More About Your Middle School Aspirations

As part of the application process, applicants are required to complete a student interview/assessment during their SHA for a Day - Shadow Visit. This conversation with our admission team will give your daughter the opportunity to ask questions as well as allow us to get to know her as a student and person. Additionally, student assessments are designed to provide an informative and comfortable introduction to our school and our teachers, while engaging the girls in activities. Should your daughter apply to SHA when school is not in session, we will coordinate with virtual experiences.

Student SHA for a Day - Shadow Visit

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.



Lower School

Nurturing strong minds and brave hearts.

Nurturing her brave heart, hopeful spirit and growing mind.
