Attending Sacred Heart Academy, I have met so many amazing people, participated in fun sports and clubs, and now feel ready for what’s to come after high school. The most influential aspect of Sacred Heart to me, is the teachers. They truly do sacrifice all of their time for their students and work to create genuine relationships with everyone they teach. First walking in to Sacred Heart, you are immediately greeted with a big smile from Mrs. Towsley at the front desk. Our college counselors begin the college process with us junior year to ensure we our offered enough assistance in applying and transitioning to college. One thing all sacred heart students can agree on is that the food is amazing! Our food is from FLIK which offers so many options of food excluding quesadillas, pastas, salads, subs, pizza, fruit, vegetables, and the most amazing cookies.I’m so thankful for my choice to attend Sacred Heart Academy and wouldn’t change my decision for the world.

My experience with Sacred Heart was amazing! I received education that has prepared me for college and for the rest of my life. Sacred Heart offers so many extracurriculars and classes that if you wanted to go into a certain career there are so many classes you can benefit from. Overall my experience with Sacred Heart was great. I would change a the carpool pickup line because that can be time consuming, but that is the only thing I would change.
Sacred Heart Academy is a terrific, all-girls catholic school.
SHA offers several academic levels to best suit students, therefore the class level of difficulty will always feel appropriate.
Sacred Heart teachers are outstanding. Coming from a different middle school to Sacred Heart, I truly appriciate the dedication, knowledge, and effort each of my teachers put into their classes. Teachers offer to stay after class, and even meet outside of school on weekends to ensure student success. I have a personal relationship with all my teachers, that continues even after the school year ends.
Sacred Heart wants students to succeed even after they leave highschool. SHA gives students access to college counselors, college visits to SHA, and YouScience (a program that assess what career paths would be best for the student).
Sacred Heart is ranked #3 in the best catholic high schools in Kentucky, but I think it should be ranked #1.
