Sacred Heart Network
Sacred Heart Schools at Sheridan Road is proud to belong to the Network of Sacred Heart Schools.
Each of the 24 member schools in the United States and Canada was founded by the Society of the Sacred Heart and shares a deep commitment to the educational philosophy first articulated by St. Madeleine Sophie Barat and now expressed in the five Goals and Criteria, which defines the scope and vision of Sacred Heart education. The global network of Sacred Heart Schools encompasses more than 150 schools in more than 40 countries.
As required by the Society of the Sacred Heart, each school renews its vision and practice as a Sacred Heart school in a five-year cycle akin to reaccreditation. In addition, each school is accredited by its own regional authority (in our case the Independent Schools Association of the Central States or ISACS), and recognized as a Catholic school by the Archdiocese of Chicago. Learn more about Sacred Heart's accreditations and affiliations.
The larger Sacred Heart community gives strength to each individual school. Faculty, administrators and trustees regularly attend Network conferences where they benefit from the expertise and intellectual resources of their colleagues across the nation. Students participate in network-wide summer programs as well as joint service and leadership projects during the school year. Network webcasts and teleconferences help us stay connected.
