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



Courage and Confidence. These words were first spoken over 200 years ago by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart. Here at Newton Country Day, we focus on the same core values that are reflected in Sacred Heart schools around the world. Highly motivated students and faculty of all faiths create a vibrant community distinguished by vigorous intellect, active compassion, and joyful traditions.

The start of the school year brings 79 new students to NCDS this fall. It's a group of bright, enthusiastic girls eager to challenge themselves, take risks, and forge new friendships. There are 35 are coming from Catholic schools, 25 from public schools, and 18 from secular independent schools. One has most recently been home-schooled. There are 17 siblings, four new sets of sisters, and three girls who previously attended one of the other Sacred Heart schools in the network. We are so excited to have our new students and their families join our community.

To discover what Newton Country Day has to offer, I suggest you begin by exploring our website. Our FAQs are a useful source of information about our class schedule, athletic requirements, tuition assistance, etc. Tours and interviews for applicants interested in the 2020-21 school year will begin in late September, and our first Prospective Parent Coffee takes place on September 26.

I wish you and your family courage and confidence as you navigate the school application process.
