Board of Governors

Strategic Leadership

Board members come from diverse backgrounds and traditions, but each of them shares a common belief in the value of Sacred Heart education. Each is wholeheartedly committed to seeing the school grow and flourish. The Board of Governors is made up of present and past parents, alumnae, faculty, Religious of the Sacred Heart, and members of the wider community.
