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.
