From Academy of the Sacred Heart

The Academy of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic, independent school that offers students the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and happy environment. Our preschool through eighth grade program focuses on building strong academic skills while fostering independent learning and communication. Curriculum highlights include: three Science labs, 1:1 computing, French and Spanish, daily Physical Education, and recognized Art and Music programs.

Founded in 1818 by St. Philippine Duchesne, the Academy was the first of many Sacred Heart schools established in the United States. Our mission is to educate and inspire the heart and mind of each child to become a courageous and confident leader who knows and loves God, and who reveals that love by serving others. Our graduates are young men and women well prepared for the challenges of high school, college, and beyond.

    We researched several schools both public and faith based and were curious what offerings the school provided that made the tuition higher than parochial schools. Academy of the Sacred Heart is a giant leap above other schools. The Academy of the Sacred Heart has very high standards of academic achievement as well as high standards of teaching them to grow into generous globally conscious individuals. The school excels in STEM and also in the arts and foreign language. Band starts in third grade! My husband is a public school teacher and noted several textbooks for 6th graders, were the same that 7th graders use in MO public schools. Students are learning a year ahead of the public school system. We are thrilled with the growth & development our children have received. The class sizes are meant to be small with a max of 16 students per class to ensure students are getting the attention to thrive and excel. All the other schools paled in comparison to the Academy of the Sacred Heart.

    Amazing academic program, including a science lab for lower school classes, 1:1 devices across all grades, French and Spanish are both taught, music, art and PE every day for every student!

    Religious education helps children to build their relationship with God and offers the chance to put their faith in action through meaningful service.

    Beautiful campus, Shrine of St. Philippine Duchesne is connected to the school. Teachers and staff know the students and support the needs of each child.

    Athletic programs, band, chess, robotics offered and there is a summer program.
    ABSOLUTELY EXCEPTIONAL = ACADEMY of the SACRED HEART! HANDS DOWN - the BEST SCHOOL in ST. CHARLES and likely one of the PREMIER INSTITUTIONS in the MIDWEST!

    I cannot say enough about how The Academy provides my three children with an education of the mind and the heart. My children are TRULY critical thinkers; they are flexible; they are HEADS ABOVE other children their same age, and this is COMPLETELY BECAUSE of THE ACADEMY.

    I cannot say enough marvelous things about how The Academy prepares my children - ALL children - to be life-long learners; to be curious, inquisitive, and socially responsible.

    As a parent, if you want the VERY BEST EXPERIENCE for your child, then YOU MUST CHOOSE THE ACADEMY!

    I apologize for my capital letters, but it is my genuine passion and appreciation for this most sacred, magnificent school that compels me to do so.

    You will LOVE The Academy of the Sacred Heart!
