Sacred Heart Academy, an independent Catholic college preparatory school for young women in grades 9 – 12, will open its doors to prospective students and their families on Sunday, October 15, from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Academy’s Annual Open House.
The Academy is located at 265 Benham Street in Hamden.
Sacred Heart Academy, an independent Catholic college preparatory school for young women in grades 9 – 12 founded in 1946 by the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, successfully prepares young women for learning, service, and achievement in a global society. More than 500 students, hailing from 60 towns and over 80 feeder schools in Connecticut, are enrolled.
The Open House is designed to give prospective families a feel for the spirit and focus of the Academy and encourages visitors to spend the day as they choose.
Student guided tours are offered throughout the afternoon, with time allowed for areas of particular interest. Administrators, faculty and staff, coaches, students, current parents, and alumnae will be on hand to meet and greet and answer questions.
Activities, presentations, and exhibits representing all facets of the Academy will be offered. Visitors will have an opportunity to learn about the challenging academic program and co-curricular activities, observe students and teachers using the latest technology, preview the upcoming performance of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, see cutting edge research in the state of the art molecular science, chemistry, physics and biology laboratories, and experience the orchestra and concert choir. Information on transportation, financial aid, athletics, and college placement will also be available.
“At Sacred Heart, I have been free to pursue my passion for the humanities and the arts under dedicated and skilled teachers who encourage and engage me in the classroom and beyond,” said Elizabeth Lamont, ’17, of Hamden. “Here, students are surrounded by a strong community of teachers and students who support our dreams and take care of us along the way.”
All are welcome to attend the Open House; seventh and eighth graders and their parents are particularly encouraged to attend if they are considering admission. It is not necessary to call in advance.
