Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart
Welcome to Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart, a private Catholic high school that has been educating young women in the Franciscan tradition for more than 130 years. Founded by the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Christian Charity, our Academy community includes a student body of approximately 400 unique young women, more than 75 dedicated faculty and staff members, supportive parents, and many thousands of loyal alumnae. We are located on a beautiful campus with an architecturally stunning building that is impeccably maintained and updated with the latest equipment and technology.
Sacred Heart Academy provides a stimulating learning environment that focuses on developing each student’s spirit, mind, and body. Service to the community and leadership development are key features of Sacred Heart Academy, and are implemented through our Footprints Service Program and Leadership Studies Program. Our rigorous academic courses prepare young women to succeed in college and beyond. In addition to the core curriculum, our instruction emphasizes inquiry and exploration, intellectual openness, critical thinking, problem solving, and research and writing skills. Award-winning visual and performing arts and music programs, strong athletics, and diverse extracurricular clubs broaden the offerings to our students.
I invite you to explore this website to gain an overview of the education offered here at Sacred Heart Academy. You are most welcome to visit and experience our friendly and unique atmosphere. Whether you are a prospective family, a current parent, a returning alumna, or a friend of the Academy, I would be delighted to show you our vision in action — empowering young women through excellence in education.
