Network of Schools

The Network of Sacred Heart Schools is an association of twenty-five independent, educational Sacred Heart schools across the United States and Canada that share a common bond – "Educate the whole child." Together, we are dedicated to the values of Christian education articulated nearly two hundred years ago by the foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart, Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat.

Part of something bigger

Every Upper School student at Stuart has the opportunity to study abroad at one of our 150 sister Sacred Heart schools around the globe.

Our young women spend at least two weeks living with students and attending classes in cities such as Lima, Peru; Sydney, Australia; Paris, France; as well as closer to home in San Francisco, New Orleans, Montreal and many more. Our students reciprocate by hosting their “SHAEP sisters” at Stuart, enriching the entire Stuart community, and fostering international connections that can last for life.

Exchange opportunities begin in eighth grade at Stuart and include several local, national and international options for travel, study and exchange.

Through SHAEP in my sophomore year, I lived with a host family and attended Sophianum in Lima, Peru. SHAEP was truly a life-changing experience because I was completely immersed in both the traditional and quotidian aspects of Peruvian culture. My friends and I flew on a plane by ourselves, and upon arrival, we were soon welcomed by the Peruvian Sacred Heart community. Overall, I learned so much about Peruvian family life, food, education, and Spanish that I could not have done if I did not participate in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Vivian Chen ‘21
