Welcome to Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart. I am pleased to invite you to learn more about our extraordinary school and community. As Chicago's first all-girls independent high school to offer the wall-to-wall International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program, we provide our students with a world-class curriculum designed to prepare them to be successful at college and in life.
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. We keep our class sizes small, and our 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. We support each student to “think big” and find her unique place in the world.
At Josephinum, the valedictorian, the most athletic, the funniest, and the star of the school play are all girls. We believe that an all-girls environment creates a culture of achievement in which academic progress and individual development are valued and celebrated. Josephinum is a school where girls are accustomed to having their voices heard and regularly see women holding leadership roles, creating a model for the world young women want and deserve.
Our graduates leave high school confident in themselves, their ideas, and their goals. They are prepared for college and beyond, ready to become the leaders our world needs.
We look forward to welcoming you into our community, and thank you for your interest in Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart!
