Head of School Welcome

Adler_YA Sacred Heart Welcome to you!

I hope this visit to our website entices you to visit our campus. We are two schools on one iconic campus in Grand Coteau. Founded in 1821, we are the oldest continually operating Sacred Heart School in the world. We have been educators of excellence for all these years and pride ourselves on empowering women and men to be successful leaders in the world today. Ours is a legacy of authentic scholarship, deep learning, active engagement with the community and an entrepreneurial spirit that empowers much good in the world. In a word: excellence in education.

Unique among our many signature programs is the fact that both of our schools are single gender, enabling us to teach in ways that girls learn best, and in ways that boys learn best, all on one campus.

These 250 acres are holy ground. We have been steeped in the Catholic faith and tradition since the town’s inception. We proudly carry on that tradition, offering a world-view based on the Scriptures and the noble Tradition of the Church.

Send your child to Schools of the Sacred Heart and she can ride horses, he can play football, she can swim, he can study robotics, she can engage in Advanced Placement, the possibilities are limitless.

If you want to give your children the best gift they can ever receive, you will send them to Sacred Heart. You will be happy and not only will they be successful in life, but they will be fulfilled, too.

When you come to campus, please stop in to say hello. My door is open to you. I look forward to welcoming you.  Come home to Sacred Heart.
