Why Choose Sacred Heart

Older than Canada itself, The Sacred Heart School of Montreal will welcome its 157th class this September. While cherishing its storied tradition, the school is firmly in the 21st century. A host of technological advances are at the disposal of its students.

Why Choose Sared Heart – Top 5 Reasons

Now in it’s second year, The Sacred Heart School of Montreal became the first among private schools in the city to offer all of its students GradeSlam. GradeSlam is an unlimited, online tutoring service. It is a trusted and innovative local company whose expert tutors are available for students in every subject area 24/7.


This is not the only technological innovation at the preeminent English Catholic high school for girls. After a successful pilot project with Google apps for Education and Chromebooks in 2015-2016, the school is providing the internet-based laptops to all of its students.


All of this innovation will benefit a growing number of girls. Although class sizes remain purposefully small, with a ratio of 1 faculty member per 6 students, the 2016-2017 school year will see the largest incoming class in ten years at Sacred Heart, with three incoming grade 7 classes.


To accommodate the growing interest in the school, we have added a second Open House to the usual one at the end of September. Families with a daughter in grade 5 or 6 who is interested in enrolling at Sacred Heart are invited to tour the school on Saturday, September 16, between 12:30 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. or on Tuesday, October 3, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. In addition, the school offers a Student-for-a-day program and admissions throughout the year. More information can be found on the school’s newly redesigned web site, at www.sacredheart.qc.ca.


Building Renovations

The iconic school building is also being updated in key areas: a bathroom reno on the main floor; a brand-new auditorium with theatre-style seating for 350 people, and renovated boarding quarters on the top floor. Alumnae and others may recall that Sacred Heart housed boarders until 1993. With a growing international student population, the school has decided to bring boarding back, beginning in 2017.
