From the Director of Admission

Dear Prospective Families:

We are thrilled you are considering joining our Sacred Heart community and are taking the time to explore our website to see if we are the “right fit” for your child.

For more than a century, Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton has served the educational needs of local families under a mission to nurture and develop the whole child- mind, body, and spirit, and to lay the foundation for a meaningful life. As a P-12 school, Sacred Heart ensures students thrive as they grow in both scholarship and values, and begin to make their place in the world.

More than an academic program, however, we fundamentally strive to ensure our school is a place where each student can experience the best possible learning environment, can grow and challenge themselves, and can thrive in an atmosphere of respect, inclusion, forgiveness, love, compassion, and generosity toward one another. In essence, we intend Sacred Heart to be our students' academic home. This is something I am confident you will see as you continue to explore our school, and talk with faculty, staff, and current Sacred Heart families and students.

I realize this process of finding, settling on, and applying to the right school for your child can feel intense and pressure filled. I want to assure you we are always available and happy to field your questions, to answer your concerns, and help you decide whether Sacred Heart will be the best educational choice for your child and best community for your family.

I look forward to coming to know and work with your family as you continue to consider Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton.

All the best,

Wendy Quattlebaum (SHP '93)
Director of Admission, Preschool to Grade 12
