After Sacred Heart  

Sacred Heart families benefit from a thoughtful and thorough high school counseling program that guides students through each step of the secondary school admissions process.

Families meet with the high school placement counselor who assists them in gathering information on schools of interest, arranging school visit days and preparing students for admissions assessments, interviews and essays.


The Schools sponsor a high school fair each fall where admissions representatives from more than 40 local and boarding schools make themselves available to speak with parents and students about their programs. A test review course is offered after school that acquaints students with the various admissions tests they will encounter at the city’s independent, Catholic and selective-enrollment public high schools. As the application process draws to a close and acceptances are received, the counselor is happy to advise on final school choice, as each family deems necessary. Finally, eighth grade students have an opportunity to speak with Sacred Heart graduates to learn tips for making a successful transition from Sacred Heart to high school. 

Throughout the high school counseling process, emphasis is placed on helping students find the school that is the best fit for them. As a result, our students make school choices that reflect their individual interests, learning styles and ambitions.
