About Us

Convent of the Sacred Heart is a Catholic, independent college preparatory School for young women from Preschool through Grade 12.

Part of a Network of more than 200 Sacred Heart Schools in 44 countries, the 21 Sacred Heart Schools in the United States share a common set of Goals & Criteria that bind us together, both philosophically and spiritually, in a common educational mission. The Sacred Heart Goals & Criteria provide an enduring framework within which we are free to develop curricula and programming appropriate to the needs of our student body.

With a beautiful view of Long Island Sound from Convent of the Sacred Heart’s 110-acre campus in Greenwich, Connecticut, more than 680 students carry on the Sacred Heart tradition of academic excellence and development of the mind, body and spirit.

Our modern campus has classrooms wired with the latest audiovisual and electronic technology. The state-of-the-art science wing provides students with the latest laboratory equipment and study materials available.

Sacred Heart’s Media Center has an extensive collection of printed books and periodicals and access to numerous online databases for enhanced research capabilities. In addition, the Cora E. McLaughlin Art Gallery attracts local and nationally acclaimed artists and also showcases student and teacher talent.

Our athletics teams compete in leagues in Westchester County, Fairfield County and throughout New England. Students utilize our playing fields for lacrosse, soccer, field hockey and softball as well as our three-mile cross country course, six tennis courts, 25-yard indoor swimming pool, gymnasium and weight room, dance studio and playgrounds.

For our aspiring photographers, artists, actresses and singers, we have a photography studio, several large art studios, a clay kiln, and a state-of-the-art auditorium for plays, musicals and choral performances.

The strength of a Sacred Heart education is firmly grounded in the development of a strong and lively faith in God. From their earliest years, the girls are provided with experiences that create a strong foundation for the development of their personal relationship with God. A rigorous religious education and theology program is required for all students. Approximately 70% of the student body is Roman Catholic and the School cherishes the religious belief of each girl by actively responding to the clarion call to ecumenism as directed by the Second Vatican Council.
