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.

Arrangements to shadow may be made by calling (516) 483-7383. Shadows meet their hosting Freshman or Sophomore at 7:45 a.m. in the General Office, attend all classes with her and return at 2:45 p.m. to the office at the end of the school day. Students are not allowed to spend the day at SHA unless the appointment has been 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.

Sacred Heart Academy will provide a $5.00 voucher that can be used toward the purchase of lunch. Shadows may also pack a lunch and carry it with her during the day.

Shadows will meet with Ms. Mary White, Director of Admissions, to learn more about Sacred Heart Academy and the admission process. For further information regarding admissions, please email
