Catholic, Independent Elementary Schools Serving Chicago's Children Since 1876


Welcome to Admissions at Sacred Heart

Dear Prospective Parents,

Established in 1876, Sacred Heart is deeply rooted in Chicago, but as part of the worldwide network of Sacred Heart schools, our outlook is also global. Our school culture is joyful and loving; our curriculum is modern and remarkable. We embrace families of all faiths, backgrounds and configurations.

We are inspired by a mission: to guide our students toward lives of purpose and meaning through an education that harnesses the power of both their minds and their hearts. As a result, Sacred Heart students graduate with the confidence and competence needed to take their place in the city's best high schools -- and with a sense of compassion and commitment that will allow them to leave a positive mark on their communities throughout their lives.

This is a particularly exciting time at Sacred Heart, as we prepare for the opening of our new preschool in the fall of 2019. We look forward to soon welcoming 3- and 4-year-olds into our community, and we encourage parents to periodically return to our website to learn more as our plans unfold.

Whether you are interested in preschool, senior kindergarten, or joining us in grades 1-8, the Admissions Team is here to support and guide you. Please take advantage of the opportunity to reach out to us for conversation and advice, either before or after applying. We are always happy to talk.

Finally, we invite you to experience Sacred Heart for yourself – because families who visit, often say they fall in love. Join us for an Admissions Coffee or a private tour. Meet our students and teachers. Talk with our administrators and parents. Feel the strength of a warm and inclusive community that supports and challenges children as they discover their best selves.

Best Regards,

Judy Corrin
Admissions Director
