Sacred Heart schools are dedicated to the values of Christian education articulated nearly 200 years ago by the foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart, Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat. These schools enjoy an even wider affiliation with the people and institutions associated with the Society of the Sacred Heart in 44 countries around the globe. This truly international character of Sacred Heart education helps to foster an important global awareness in our students as we strive to build a more just world.
The Network is an important source of mutual support and development. Network schools are connected by a shared intellectual and spiritual vision. Members have numerous opportunities for collaboration. Faculty and staff participate in national Network workshops and seminars. Students benefit from award-winning Network summer service programs, exchange programs, workshops and opportunities to use shared technology resources, including distance learning.
