Newton Country Day School

Since 1880, Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart has educated girls to be thoughtful, effective, and compassionate leaders in a global society. The school’s mission is rooted in the vision of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, who in 1800 established schools of the Sacred Heart to prepare women with the courage and confidence to transform the world.

The school offers a program for young women of all faiths in grades 5 through 12, with courses through the AP level. A dedicated faculty promotes a dynamic learning atmosphere that encourages each girl to discover and cultivate her gifts and character. Through the international network of Sacred Heart Schools, students take advantage of academic exchanges across five continents, developing a school-wide global perspective.

Academic rigor, performing and visual arts, and competitive athletics build a vibrant school community. Social justice and prayer are essential elements that enrich each student’s experience. Girls are accepted to the most competitive colleges and universities with the goal of living meaningful and joyous lives. In an environment where every girl is known and loved, the school creates a foundation for a life of faith, integrity, and service. For more information, please visit
