Respect, compassion, forgiveness & generosity
Faith and community service at Sacred Heart Schools grow from our history and our Mission. When St. Madeleine Sophie Barat was a child in France, she sought out an education from her older brother, a Jesuit. After the French Revolution, she founded the Society of the Sacred Heart to share both her religious devotion and her love of learning, especially for girls.
Mother Barat and the other founding sisters of the Society developed an educational mission that incorporates spiritual, moral and community development for the purpose of forming young people who will make the world a better place. To this day, these values are intrinsic to life on Sheridan Road in the dynamic form of the Goals and Criteria of Sacred Heart Education.
