ANNOUNCEMENT: Sacred Heart to Open Preschool

ANNOUNCEMENT
From Nat Wilburn
Head of Schools

On behalf of our Board of Trustees, I am pleased to announce that Sacred Heart Schools on Sheridan Road—the Academy of the Sacred Heart for Girls and Hardey Preparatory School for Boys—will be opening a preschool. This new Early Childhood Program will welcome three- and four-year-old children and their families in to the mission of Sacred Heart education. We are pursuing an off-campus facility near our Edgewater campus and are tentatively scheduled to open in the fall of 2019.

The landscape of elementary education has expanded in recent history and is now defined as Pre-K through 8th grade in Chicago. However, kindergarten will remain the main entrance point for Sacred Heart education. We are committed to maintaining our long-standing admissions model, including Early Decision for kindergarten admission, and will continue to partner with preschools throughout the city as a means of enrolling students in kindergarten.

More details will be announced as they become available. Please direct any questions or inquiries to preschool@shschicago.org.

As we embark upon our 142nd year of educating Chicago's children in our independent, Catholic and Sacred Heart tradition, please join me and all members of our Sacred Heart community as we celebrate the expansion of our mission to preschool-aged children and their families.
