The Upper School at Stuart
All girls high school, grades 9–12
A Stuart girl graduates confident in her abilities and her beliefs, ready to take on life's challenges and make a difference in the world.
The Upper School offers robust academics, superb teaching and an atmosphere that fosters leadership. That foundation, along with a variety of clubs, athletics and service opportunities, encourages girls to push boundaries and discover both their potential and their passions.
Through our well-rounded curriculum, students master creative and expository writing, mathematical and analytical reasoning, presentation skills, foreign language, scientific discovery and self-expression. Our technology-rich environment prepares girls to learn and work in today's mobile, networked world.
Lively classroom discussions weave religion, politics and culture into all aspects of learning, helping students construct value systems they can articulate and live. Outside the classroom, sports, theater and extensive club options cultivate team-building skills and lifelong friendships.

Recent Stuart graduate Annie Huber competed with the Princeton National Rowing Association/Mercer in the US Rowing Youth National Championship on the weekend of June 8-9 in Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida. She traveled there with the Men's Varsity 4+ boat as the coxswain and won a silver medal!
In Sacred Heart tradition, all three divisions commemorated the school year with Prize Days, and the Early Childhood students celebrated a closing ceremony and Teddy Bear Picnic. Prize Day is an opportunity to honor our students for their intellectual and personal growth throughout the year and showcase their incredible talent.
