From the founding of Sacred Heart education in France in 1800, the Religious of the Sacred Heart are now present in 45 countries around the world. This international network provides the framework for the global education program at Oak Hill. Through a variety of intercultural experiences our students come to better understand our world and find their place as citizens in a global community.
Step into a classroom and you will find students playing the music of Japan; exploring the geography of Zimbabwe; or studying the language of France. By integrating technology with the curriculum, our students video conference with schools in Taiwan; take virtual field trips to Colonial America; and email student "pen pals" in Israel. The international scope of Sacred Heart education fosters the global awareness vital for student success in the 21st century.
Students from our sister schools are also offered the chance to come to Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School. The exchange student stays with a host family through the duration of her stay. This is an opportunity for our students and their families to learn more about another culture and share their culture.
