Academy of the Sacred Heart Reviews

The Academy of the Sacred Heart has been a wonderful environment for my daughters and our family. My daughters are thriving and I can't wait to see the women they become! A Sacred Heart education is more than just academics, although the academics are both challenging and rigorous. A Sacred Heart education is one in which educates the whole child: they are educating girls to become moral, ethical, compassionate, empathetic and responsible global citizens . Some of my favorites things about the school are the welcoming community, the global exchange program, the religion/spirituality (we are not Catholic, yet love the religion), the administration, the resources available to students, community service, the traditions, the innovation, and the learning that goes beyond the classroom. Neither my husband nor I attended a single-sex school, yet we have fallen in love with single-sex education. I highly recommend ASH!

I've been going to this school for 12/13 years now, and I'm in the 9th grade. This school has been an amazing experience! I have had fun making friends with the girls in my grade. The best part is the traditions, such as conge (faire), may crowning, and cache cache (hide and seek), that come with being a Sacred Heart student. If you plan on attending this school, it would be an amazing choice. The teachers are amazing! The classes aren't extremely difficult (some classes are), and the teachers are great at their job (I am not speaking of all teachers).
I am extremely pleased with the education my daughter is receiving at Academy of the Sacred Heart . The Little Hearts program is an excellent early childhood program superior to any other in the city of New Orleans. The teachers are highly trained and specialized, caring and loving to every child. The classes are small in size which fosters an enriching academic structure. There is an abundance of faith built on the principles of Catholicism where above all they begin the day with a prayer. My daughter has excelled far beyond my expectations! Sacred Heart is the best decision I could have made for her education and socialization at such a young age.
