**Scheduling for our SHAdowing program is now open to all 8th graders! Click here to schedule your visit. Please note that 7th grade scheduling will begin in January 2019.

In the fall of each year, we invite eighth grade students to spend a day at Sacred Heart Academy with a current Freshman or Sophomore. Seventh grade students may shadow during selected weeks in March and April (calendar for 7th grade SHAdows will open in January).


SHAdows meet their hosting Freshman or Sophomore at 7:45 a.m. in the General Office, attend all classes with her and return to the General Office at 2:30 p.m.  SHAdowing appointments must be made in advance.


Prospective students are asked to wear a dress, skirt and blouse/sweater or a school uniform. Please refrain from wearing slacks, shorts, denim, miniskirts, flip-flops or sneakers.


SHAdows will meet with Ms. Mary White and/or Mrs. Mary Beth Stines from the Admissions Office to learn more about Sacred Heart Academy and the admissions process. For further information regarding admissions, please email


Sacred Heart Academy will provide a $5.00 voucher that can be used toward the purchase of lunch. SHAdows may also bring their own lunch.
