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.

As the end of the school year quickly approaches, girls are immersed in exam review and final projects. Seniors are completing month-long, off-campus internships, ranging from shadowing doctors at the area's leading hospitals to working in the costume shop at the Boston Ballet Company. Our younger Middle Schoolers just returned from several days at Camp Hazen in Connecticut, while our eighth graders head off soon to Washington, D.C. Upper School girls have finished up their AP exams, and athletic teams once again had a very successful spring sports season. This week our juniors receive their class rings as we celebrate the Feast of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, the founder of the Society of the Sacred Heart, and begin taking on an important leadership role in the school community.

To discover what Newton Country Day has to offer, I suggest you begin by exploring our website. While the application deadline has passed, we understand that evolving family situations do not always correspond with the admission timeline. Please call the Admission Office to inquire about submitting a late application.

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