Last weekend, 19 Stuart sophomores embarked on an opportunity of a lifetime when they left home to travel far and wide on SHAEP, the Sacred Heart Academic Exchange Program. Our students will be spending the next two weeks in one of seven locations: Lima, Peru; Nantes, France; Madrid, Spain; Dublin, Ireland; Nova Scotia, Canada; St. Louis, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois. After their first week, we've heard that they're doing great! Three other sophomore girls will leave for New Orleans, Ireland and Japan later in the year. Every year during the two weeks leading up to Spring Break, girls in grade 10 are given 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 alongside their Sacred Heart sisters. Our students reciprocate by hosting their "SHAEP sisters" at Stuart, enriching the entire Stuart community, and fostering international connections that can last a lifetime.
