Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart


I am pleased to introduce you to Sacred Heart Academy as you consider options for high school education.  I invite you to explore our website to discover what SHA offers.  Browse the academic pages to learn about the enriching college preparatory curriculum, explore our extensive athletic and extracurricular offerings, our beautiful and well-equipped campus, and the rich history and traditions. 

The core of the SHA community is our lively student body of approximately 540 intelligent, compassionate and motivated young women.  They come to SHA from all over Western New York, representing more than 26 school districts and coming from more than 45 Catholic, public and charter schools.  To get a sense of our students and their accomplishments, click the link below to see the impressive academic profile of our recent graduating class. 

The admissions section provides the information needed to enroll at SHA as an incoming freshwoman or as a transfer student.  You will find important admissions dates for the current academic year, information about the application process and entrance examination, learn how to see our Academy in action by shadowing for a day, and gather tuition, financial aid and scholarship information.  Of course, nothing compares to the experience of being here at SHA, and so I encourage you to contact the Admissions Office to arrange a visit.

I look forward to seeing you on campus.

Mary Ganey Cochrane
Director of Admissions
