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 school year is nearing its half-way point, and girls from Grades 5-12 have adjusted to different subjects, new teachers, and increased expectations. Athletics have moved from the playing fields and river into the Martin Center for members of our squash,  basketball, and competitive dance teams, with ice hockey underway at nearby Daly Rink. Christmas decorations have been carefully packed up and put in storage for next year. And rehearsals have begun for the Middle School's production of Seussical, which will take place in the Sweeney Husson Theatre in February.


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 will be scheduled through early February, and we host regional receptions in January in Belmont, Boston, Needham, Newton, and Wellesley. You can sign up for one of the regional events through your Ravenna account.

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