For more than a century, Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton (SHS) has carried out the mission of our founder St. Madeleine Sophie Barat—educating generations of students toward meaningful lives, characterized by an active faith that manifests in service to others for a more humane, just, and caring world.
Today, SHS is a vibrant, thriving, and dynamic institution, committed to educational excellence and the teachings of a Christ as expressed in forgiveness, compassion, respect and generosity. From preschool through high school, our world-class, diverse faculty and staff guide students of all faiths to become thoughtful and caring young adults through a rigorous curriculum and mission-driven programs, the development of active leadership skills, and emphasis on personal integrity. These are the hallmarks of the SHS experience, and the core of our Sacred Heart spirit. Welcome.
