School Notes

  • CATHOLIC & INDEPENDENT - Driven by our Dominican, Catholic roots. Independent in philosophy. This unique combination equals a commitment to educating the whole person in a setting that allows adolescent girls to flourish into young women who are grounded in their values and well-prepared for college and beyond.Students have the privilege of learning in an environment rooted in the Dominican charism (a spiritual gift granted by God for the benefit of others), where the pursuit of truth—in study, faith, service, and community—becomes the fabric of their daily lives. As a result, students gain a deeper understanding of who they are and are able to become the best version of themselves.Flintridge Sacred Heart welcomes students from all religious traditions and is committed to guiding every young woman on her own, personal faith journey. To this end, Flintridge Sacred Heart strives to partner with parents in the formation of their daughters. We recognize the interdependence of physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social and environmental health, and their benefits for learning. Thus, Flintridge Sacred Heart offers a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, outstanding visual and performing arts, an excellent athletic program, a dynamic campus ministry and service program, formative leadership opportunities in clubs, athletics, co-curriculars, service and global travel experiences.
