Before Winter Storm Quinn closed the airports last week, 13 Stuart sophomores embarked on an opportunity of a lifetime when they left home to travel far and wide on SHAEP, our Sacred Heart Academic Exchange Program. The students will be spending the next two weeks in one of eight destinations in seven different countries, including Peru, Spain, France, Japan, Ireland, and Australia, as well as Chicago and New Orleans in the United States.

Every year during the two weeks leading up to Spring Break, girls at Stuart 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.
