The Academy of Sacred Heart is a wonderful school. My husband and I are very impressed with the education and the manners the girls display. Your child will be prepared for the future and society .

With great dignity and respect, the wonderful school educates girls and transforms them into young women in the most loving and caring way. My two daughters love going to school and we are blessed as parents through our children's experience at the Academy of the Sacred Heart. Everything is done in a very meaningful, simple, dignified way. While academically excellent, their approach is such that girls are not intimidated into learning to achieve a test score, but rather because they have instilled in them a love of learning that inspires them to reach new heights. There is no better place for young girls to evolve into beautiful young women who are poised, confident and self-assured. It is truly a special place.

The school fosters a strong sense of self, community and wisdom in the girls. The girls are challenged to become not only exceptional students, but exceptional members of the community. I attended and now my daughter is attending the same school. The school is set in a beautiful location and has great teachers that attempt to foster a sense of curiosity regarding education rather than simply teaching rote memorization for testing purposes.

Our family has attended this school for generations. The sense of community is one that can not be found at any other school. The teachers are caring and capable. The academics are rigorous and students are more than prepared for college. Now that there is a boys' division, there is nothing more that we could ask for from this school. It is no doubt the best school in the Acadiana area,

This School has the best academic progrems I have seen. Teachers are always willing to help students no matter what. There is almost every sport for girls there. There is music, art, and optional piano,and guitar lessons. This is the first private and all girl school my daughter has been to. I have no intension of taking her out. There are so many more good things i could say about this school.

My daughter attended this school for 12 years. A more loving and caring environment for your daughter, you will not find. Although very academically challenging, the teachers were always there willing to help with any problems. I found most of the teachers employed there were there for the 'love of teaching', a deep respect for the school and its history, and the opportunity to shape and mold a future generation of young women into confident, independent, well-rounded individuals. This school was truly my daughter's home-away-from home. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their daughter to learn to love and embrace the power of education.

I just graduated from the Academy of the Sacred Heart and am currently a freshman at Tulane University. College has been a breeze for me and I find I was well prepared. My teachers really cared about me and still do. The curriculum was challenging but yet we managed to have a blast. It was an incredible place to grow up and I miss it dearly.

A wonderful place for a girl to grow into womanhood and learn leadership skills under the guidance of an incredible faculty and awesome resources.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
