Headmistress, Academy of the Sacred Heart
Tell us what makes Academy of the Sacred Heart so special? The Academy of the Sacred Heart isn’t simply a place, or even a school. For students and families, alumna and community partners, Sacred Heart is a rich experience of community and culture, a formidable landmark of faith and learning, a pathway for growth and an adventure to savor for a lifetime.
Why is ASH the best educational option for girls in New Orleans? Women of the Sacred Heart are difference-makers, and ASH is a place for connecting in a truly global network of more than 150 Sacred Heart schools in 49 countries of the world. Entering through our gates as infants, and leaving as women, our students grow in confidence and become courageous leaders who are inspired to make change in the world. Our school community is bonded by its deep roots in the city of New Orleans through our strong relationships with one another, and through our enduring commitment to excellence with high-performance in academics, service and athletics.
Why is ASH so special to you? Beauty abounds at Sacred Heart. Students and faculty are surrounded by graceful oak trees, wraparound galleries and tree-top views of New Orleans. But what matters most is the beauty one quickly discovers in the children at Sacred Heart – their happiness, their joy in inquiry, their quest to explore the world and their hearts moved with compassion to influence its future.
