From Newton Country Day School

Courage and Confidence. These words inspired Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat through the challenges she faced with her groundbreaking vision: to establish a global network of schools to educate girls to transform the world. Founded in France in 1800, Schools of the Sacred Heart now flourish in 44 countries and over 20 locations in the United States. Sacred Heart Schools share a common philosophy of providing an education serious in its principles, strong in its studies, and rich in a spirit of life and love.

Here at NCDS, we focus on the same core values reflected in Sacred Heart Schools worldwide. Highly motivated students and faculty of all faiths create a vibrant and welcoming community distinguished by vigorous intellect, thoughtful compassion, and joyful traditions. Through the international Network of Sacred Heart Schools, girls participate in service opportunities and academic exchanges across the world. Young woman graduate from Sacred Heart Schools eager to make a difference.

The Fifth Grade Voyagers Program

academic spotlight

Our fifth grade participates in the Voyagers Program. Every other Wednesday, fifth graders venture out for day-long, interdisciplinary educational excursions. These trips are drawn from the curriculum and complement traditional lessons. Boston becomes another classroom for our fifth grade Voyagers, who become immersed in the many cultural and educational opportunities that Boston has to offer.
