THERE ARE ONLY TWO WAYS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE. ONE IS AS THOUGH NOTHING IS A MIRACLE. THE OTHER IS AS THOUGH EVERYTHING IS A MIRACLE. ALBERT EINSTEIN
Our Lower School academic curriculum helps students discover the world is beautiful and fascinating, whether they're looking at a flower, a planet, or a mathematical fact.
Being in an all-girls environment means students are less likely to pigeonhole certain subjects or activities as “male” or “female,” and to be excited about trying them all. In science, for example, our third graders build dioramas of storefronts and light them with circuits and switches they build themselves. The seventh graders, who build their own wind turbines, then join the third graders in rewiring their switches to pull power from the turbines, thus developing a deeper understanding of energy concepts. And, through our new Mustard Seeds outdoor program, Lower School students apply the science concepts they're learning in the classroom outside and become good stewards of nature.
Our job as educators is to collaborate with families in guiding students to become the best versions of themselves academically, socially, and spiritually. With a strong academic foundation, Sacred Heart students develop a reservoir of confidence and take joy in learning at every level.
Lower School students learn to take risks and develop as leaders, assuming essential roles in performances, media studies, liturgies, and assemblies.
