Sacred Heart is an excellent school that creates strong bonds with the girls that seem to last a lifetime. I couldn't be happier.

This is a great school and my daughter is very happy there. The teachers have been incredible and really seem to care about the girls.

As an alum and a parent of a student, I can say without reservation that Sacred Heart provides an excellent education. The faculty imbues a love of learning and employs many different approaches to reach each student. What's even better than that is the attention paid to the development of well rounded, spiritual girls with a committment to their service. The relationships formed there last a lifetime.

I personally went to this school and had the time of my life. I have been going for 11 years. No other school in New orleans can give you such a tight knit commnity. You get this community sense even from the other network schools.

My daughter attended Sacred Heart for the first time this year. What a wonderful school! Its nurturing, caring, and enthusiastic staff make school a pleasure for both my daughter and I. I highly recommend it! She had attended another all girl school in New Orleans and there is no comparison either academically or with the teachers. A great place for your daughter to blossom.

Our two daughters graduated from Sacred Heart and we hope our granddaughter will, too. Our daughters are beautiful, well educated and committed to their faith. After graduating many years ago, both of them enjoy lasting friendships with classmates from Sacred Heart. A nurturing environment with excellent academic standards, Sacred Heart is a New Orleans treasure and pinacle of a girl's education second to none in this area.

Sacred Heart offers an outstanding education which emphasizes faith in God, respect for intellectual values, community building as well as community service, and personal growth. My daughter thrived in this school and developed into a self-confident young woman with a strong faith and a desire to help others. I strongly recommend the Academy of the Sacred Heart.

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.
