SHA Has A New Sister!

Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart is thrilled to announce that one of the school's major Strategic Plan objectives has been fulfilled through the acquisition of a property located at 3826 Main Street. SHA's purchase of the building and lot, formerly occupied by People, Inc., was filed in early August. 
Located just across Maynard Drive from SHA's Clare Music Hall, the building adds 10,000 square feet of bright, flexible space to the Academy's facilities. Originally the home of the Eggertsville Hose Company, it was designed in 1931 by the storied Buffalo Architectural firm of Bley & Lyman - the same team responsible for designing our iconic building at 3860 Main Street. 
Because our two buildings share the same designers and many features, they are considered "Sister Buildings." This is especially fitting because of the role Sisterhood plays in a student's experience at Sacred Heart. Sisterhood summarizes the friendships that girls nurture during their four years at SHA, a support network that is there when needed most, and an atmosphere of collaboration and camaraderie that is the signature of a Sacred Heart experience.  In addition, the word "sisters" is a fitting tribute to our founding order, the Sisters of St. Francis of Penance and Charity. Stay tuned as we watch our new "sister" take shape!
