Chartered in 1881, the Convent of the Sacred Heart is a member of the international network of Sacred Heart schools and the oldest independent girls' school in New York City. The beautiful facilities are located in two landmark buildings overlooking Central Park. The school is dedicated to the holistic development of young women, and committed to preparing students for the challenges of the modern world. The Convent of the Sacred Heart headmistress states: 'As we teach children to read, write, listen, think, imagine and create, at the Convent of the Sacred Heart we need also to educate them to their responsibilities as citizens who will create a more just and compassionate world'. The Lower School provides a strong learning foundation, and is designed to help students become inquisitive, original thinkers through intensive personal attention and small-group study. By the time students reach the Middle School, comprised of grades 5 through 7, they are ready for more abstract study in the basic subjects. They continue the study of foreign languages begun in grade 3, while thoroughly preparing for the academic challenges of the Upper School, where the curriculum is rigorous. In addition to demanding college preparatory courses, a wide variety of electives are offered, many highlighting the unique cultural advantages of New York City. Advancement Placement courses are offered in English, history, modern and classical languages, mathematics, sciences, studio art, and music. Additionally, religion courses are required of all Sacred Heart students. Co-curricular activities include student government, Model UN, literary, science, and second language publications, theatrical productions, mock trial, forensics, women of proud heritage, handbells, archaeology, chorus, math team, and numerous student-run clubs, while numerous athletic teams compete with other independent schools. Students may participate in an exchange program with other Sacred Heart schools in Europe and the United States. Service activities are expected of each student, exemplifying the commitment of Sacred Heart education to social justice, generosity, and the support of the broader comuninity.
