The Fund for Excellence

Celebrating $8,600,000 raised and counting!

It supports academic programming, athletic programs, the arts, Family Individualized Tuition, and innovation as we look to the future. In December 2020, we approved a five-year Strategic Plan for Villa Duchesne and Oak Hill School. This Plan ensures the long-term sustainability of the educational vision of our foundress and provides for school-wide advancement of the academic and co-curricular experiences of our students at every age.

Your support of the Fund for Excellence ensures that Sacred Heart education thrives in St. Louis. Mission partners like you have sustained the legacy of our Sacred Heart education for 200 years, and the possibilities as we advance are endless. Together, we’ve built a community founded upon strong traditions and a commitment to innovation.Your support benefits every Sacred Heart student, every day.
