OMG! Talk about exceeding every expectation! From the moment I walked through the doors for an open house a year ago till my girls started in JK and EC-3 in September 2018 I have been amazed at all of the meticulous attention given to every single detail of their education from the facilities, staff, curriculum, and diversity! Not to mention the "It takes a Village to raise one feel" Hats off to the Sacred Heart. Can't imagine any where else I would trust with my girls! Truly One of America's remaining safe havens. Stuart Country Day is certainly a game changer. Head of School Dr. Fagin prepares Stuart girls to take on the world. #lifelongfamily
Sending our daughters to Stuart has been the best decision we could have made. Academics are outstanding and the teachers are extraordinarily dedicated. Students are nurtured and encouraged to be strong, confident and compassionate leaders. Small class sizes allow for personal attention. There are clubs and activities to suit a wide variety of passions, and because Stuart is a member of the Sacred Heart network of schools, students have a unique opportunity to go on exchange programs and connect with their Sacred Heart sisters throughout the world. Excellent college guidance routinely places students in top tier universities. Strong traditions and a special community make Stuart a cherished place to be!
