About Us


This year, Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart is proud to celebrate 125 years of creating educational opportunities for exceptional young women. As Chicago's first all-girls independent high school to offer the wall-to-wall International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program, we offer a world-class curriculum designed to prepare students to be successful at college and in life.

The IB program, combined with Josephinum’s diverse community and international relationships through the Sacred Heart Network, provide our students with a unique and powerful opportunity to develop a global perspective and hone the skills that are demanded by our rapidly changing world.

As a Sacred Heart School, Josephinum measures its success one student at a time. We seek to provide an education that meets the needs of the whole child. Our small class sizes and exceptional faculty focus on understanding the unique educational needs of each student, helping her to discover her unique gifts and fostering a passion for excellence in education, service, and faith.

Having educated more than 5,000 young women in 125 graduating classes, Josephinum Academy is more than just a school; it is a community that stretches back in time, with Sacred Heart Network sister schools all across the globe.

We look forward to welcoming you into our community, and thank you for your interest in Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart!
