At the Heart of Something Special

An education without heart is just academics. Which is why our unique mission, articulated in our Five Goals, informs our academics with meaning, inspiration, and yes, heart. Those Goals are based on the belief of our Founder, St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, that education can transform society. And it’s why for almost 175 years, we have been at the Heart of something special.
