From Academy of the Sacred Heart

Changing the world since 1867.

Academy of the Sacred Heart is more than a school. It's a way of life. Faith. Academics. Service. Community. Growth. The 5 goals of Sacred Heart have been the cornerstone of our educational foundation from the day we first opened our doors in 1867. They unite us in tradition. They define us in spirit.

As New Orleans' only Catholic, independent, college prep school for girls from age 1 through grade 12, we challenge our students with an education attuned to the circumstances and times in which we live, and we express an exceptional spirit of love – for our traditions, our students, our alumnae and our NOLA community.

We invite you to come tour our school to meet teachers and students, and to learn about the advantages of an all-girls, Sacred Heart education. Come see how our girls are truly inspired to change the world. Age 1-Grade 12 – Schedule Your Personal Tour Today.
