If our youth are our future, then prepare to be impressed.

Sacred Heart School of Halifax is renowned for its academic excellence. It starts with small classes, a relational approach to teaching from our outstanding faculty, and a tailored approach to the individual student.

We nurture a love of learning early in our Junior Primary Program and in our Elementary School as we provide a solid academic foundation that develops the whole child. We then build on that foundation in the Senior School with a rigorous curriculum, a focus on critical thinking, and encouragement of a growth mindset.

Yet as important as our academic intention is, we also know that so too is the healthy balance of mind, body, and spirit. We nurture the whole child — the social, spiritual, emotional, and physical growth of our students. And, with social justice, community activism, and leadership as part of our curriculum, we encourage our students not just to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.

“I am not exaggerating when I say that Sacred Heart is the reason my daughter was successful at school and able to enrol in and now perform very well in university. We transferred her to Sacred Heart because it was clear that she had fallen into the cracks in public school and no one intended to pull her out. From the time she joined the school, she didn’t look back!”
