Challenging girls to become women of 
intellect, character, innovation, action, and faith


An independent, preparatory school for girls in grades 5-12. Educating women of Courage and Confidence since 1880.

Founded in 1880, Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart is an independent, college preparatory school for girls. Rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition, Newton is a member of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, which spans 41 countries and 22 cities in the United States.

At Newton Country Day young women are prepared for lives of courage and confidence. Such preparation is accomplished deliberately, guiding students to realize the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and physical dimensions of their lives. Here, students experience the transformative power of God's love for each of them. Secure in that knowledge, students develop a deep and enduring capacity for scholarly engagement and social justice.

Highly motivated girls of all faiths energize the school and join a community of vigorous intellect, active compassion, and joyful traditions. Students discover and develop their individual talents and dedicate their gifts to the service of others.

Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart is a member of the International Network of Sacred Heart Schools, the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, the National Association of Independent Schools, and the Association of Independent Schools in New England.



The community makes NCDS a special place. I always feel so comfortable being myself and love having the unconditional love and support from the girls in my class.T. Field ’19
