Welcome

 
I am pleased to welcome you to Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart as you consider options for high school. The core of our community is a student body of more than 500 young women representing more than 26 school districts who come from more than 45 Catholic, private, public and charter schools. Whether a student comes to SHA by herself or with friends, each girl feels welcomed and quickly becomes a part of the SHA “sisterhood.” The friendships that she develops over four years will last a lifetime.

I invite you to explore our website to discover what Sacred Heart offers. Browse the academic pages to learn about the enriching college preparatory curriculum and our exceptional faculty, explore our extensive athletic and extracurricular offerings, our beautiful and well-equipped campus, the rich 140-year history and long traditions within an inclusive Franciscan community, as well as the advantage of an all-girls education.

The admissions section provides the information needed to enroll at Sacred Heart Academy as either 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 the Academy in action by shadowing for a day, and gather tuition, financial aid and scholarship information. In addition, we offer several workshops and camps throughout the year for middle school girls.

Of course, nothing compares to the experience of being here at Sacred Heart, and so I encourage you to contact the Admissions Office to arrange a visit.

Again, welcome, and I look forward to seeing you on campus.

“I feel so at home at SHA because I can just be myself.  I'm surrounded by girls just like me who want what I want- to get the best education they can so they can succeed in life.”
