It is also a member of the Society of the Sacred Heart and a part of the global Network of Sacred Heart Schools, a worldwide network of over 150 schools committed to the mission of a Sacred Heart education.

History:

From its inception in 1881, Convent of the Sacred Heart was governed by a strong commitment to the education of the whole child, addressing her intellectual, spiritual, social and emotional development. By the 1930s, the school had outgrown its original space on Madison Avenue and moved into the Otto Kahn Mansion on East 91st Street; in the 1940s the Society acquired the building next door, the James Burden Mansion. Since then the school has been housed in these two beautiful landmark buildings which provide an extraordinary learning environment.

College Counselling:
The college counseling program at Sacred Heart is a comprehensive process that begins with informational group meetings in the ninth grade for students and their parents. Our mission is rooted in our belief that each student is unique and that the college process is an opportunity for growth and self-reflection. At each step of the way, we are here to support and guide each student in finding her best matches for college. Weekly college counseling classes and formal one-on-one meetings begin in the eleventh grade and are supplemented with evening programs with college admissions and financial aid counselors.
