Founded in 1848, Sacred Heart Greenwich is an independent, college preparatory day school for girls from kindergarten through twelfth grade with a coed early childhood program called The Barat Center for Early Childhood Education.  

As an ethics-based, international school, Sacred Heart Greenwich brings the world to each student. It offers an unparalleled academic program that exceeds the needs of the 21st-century learner. The program is constructed to support family values, honor tradition, inspire confidence, and value all faiths.  

The school is renowned for its students’ achievements in academics, the arts and athletics as well as its curricular innovations, and award-winning programs in science research, broadcast and journalism. Graduates attend top colleges and universities, and become leaders with broad intellectual and spiritual horizons. 

Sacred Heart welcomes students of all faiths and enrolls 730 students with 1:7 teacher to student ratio. True to its international heritage, Sacred Heart Greenwich welcomes students and faculty of diverse backgrounds and faiths, so that each student will grow in an appreciation of differences.  The international exchange program with other Sacred Heart schools strengthens cultural and world language interests and provides opportunities for personal growth.     

The school offers a rigorous and integrated program in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics).  Technology is integrated into all academic disciplines at all grade levels. The 29,000-square-foot science center has fully equipped laboratories for all three divisions. An outdoor observatory features a computerized, 16-inch telescope with 800x magnification, as well as 10 eight-inch telescopes. Students engage in academic experiences facilitated by the Network of Sacred Heart School’s SophieConnect and the Online School for Girls, Blackboard Learn, and Google Apps for Education.     

There is a 450-seat theater for the performing arts, in addition to art studios with kiln for Lower, Middle and Upper School students. The spoken word is practiced off stage as well beginning with the use of a charming storytelling room for the youngest on campus, as well as the new outdoor amphitheater for older students. A fully outfitted broadcast journalism studio with a set from NBC’s “Today Show,” is the perfect training ground for future television journalists.  The journalism program provides course credit for work on the award-winning Upper School student newspaper, “The King Street Chronicle.”    The literary magazine “Perspectives” and a multicultural art and literary magazine, “Voices,” consistently win top awards from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association.  

Sacred Heart offers a well-rounded approach to women’s sports and fitness that begins in the early grades focusing on physical fitness, wellness and age-appropriate collaborative activities before moving into competitive sports in Middle and Upper School.  The school’s athletic teams compete in leagues in Westchester and Fairfield counties and throughout New England.   Sacred Heart Greenwich has enhanced its competitive team sports with a new 35,600-sq.-ft. athletic center that expands the school’s facilities for training, practice and competition.   

The new athletic center’s high caliber squash courts and coaches have created a new place to practice on campus with specialists who are tops in their field.  The athletic center provides three National Federation of State High School Associations regulation basketball and volleyball courts, six International Singles squash courts, class space for health and physical education, strength and conditioning room, dance and yoga studio, and sports medicine center.   

The school’s swimmers and divers have an indoor pool for practice and competition. Sacred Heart’s lacrosse, soccer, field hockey, softball, and tennis teams compete on two synthetic turf fields, grassy playing fields and six regulation tennis courts.  Runners and track and field use the cross-country course that winds through the campus. The golf team trains and competes on an adjacent course at Fairview Country Club.
