Network of Sacred Heart Schools

Lower & Middle Schools

The Sacred Heart Lower & Middle Schools (LMS) actively seek applications from a broad range of students, but in particular, looks for enthusiastic learners capable of succeeding within and contributing to a challenging and rigorous academic environment. The school welcomes and encourages applicants with diverse backgrounds and talents who can make a positive impact on our campus life and greater school community.

The LMS application process typically begins in the fall preceding the year of proposed entry. We offer multiple opportunities for prospective applicants and their families to visit our campus and learn more about our curriculum, co-curricular programs, and school community, including Middle School Open Houses, Campus Visit Program, and P-5 Informational Tours. By taking advantage of these and other programs, prospective families can better understand the mission, rich traditions, and exciting innovations that define Sacred Heart Schools, Atherton.
