Strategic Vision

Dear Sacred Heart Family,

It is my pleasure to present to you our Strategic Plan.

In many ways, this plan is the collective response to the questions, “What is your dream for the school?” and “What do you see when you look at the horizon?” For more than a year, the Board of Trustees has been distilling and discerning the many voices that respond to these compelling questions.

In tandem, we have engaged in internal, as well as external, assessments of education today and tomorrow. We believe in what this plan challenges us to do, and what Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat would have wanted, which is to renew our commitment to educating students of intellect and conscience for leadership in the 21st century.

With great confidence in our students and their future.

Sincerely,
Michael F. Baber
Head of School
