From Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart

At Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart, we are proud of our legacy of educating and empowering the young women of Chicago for over 130 years!

"The Jo" is committed to supporting the needs of the whole child. We keep our class sizes small and our exceptional faculty focused on understanding the unique educational needs of each and every student, fostering a passion for excellence in education, service, and faith. And our affordability and financial aid ensures that an education at The Jo is accessible to all.

Our all-girls environment creates a culture that fosters achievement, confidence, and independence. Josephinum is a school where girls are accustomed to having their voices heard and regularly see women holding leadership roles, creating a model for the world that young women want and deserve. Our graduates leave The Jo prepared to be compassionate, fearless leaders, changemakers, and visionaries that our city—and our world—needs now more than ever.

A Sacred School Tradition: Congé

A beloved Josephinum and Sacred Heart tradition! Congé is a French term that translates to "free day" or "break". It lets us as a team and faculty plan a fun surprise day for all of our students! This year Ms. Monique led us in planning an all school field trip to Sonny Acres Farm where the students were able to enjoy some of the rides, bring home a pumpkin, and enjoy all things fall!
