The Network of Sacred Heart Schools offers a program of both domestic and international exchange to its students. The Sacred Heart exchange program has existed for over 40 years and has engaged more than 2,500 students from Sacred Heart Schools in Canada 和 United States along with a multitude of international students.
From 大高地, to the World!
我们的创始人圣. 玛德琳·索菲·巴拉特, established the Society of the Sacred Heart in France in the early 1800's with a vision for its internationality. This commnunity of people of faith in action has grown and expanded across the world, now including 25 schools across North America and 150 schools internationally, all connected with the values of global citizenship, sharing the communion mission to "make known the love of God through the Heart of Jesus."
Reciprocity: about the virtues of becoming an Ambassador
Another significant component of our exchange program is reciprocity. The consistent flow of visiting Network students in 大高地 yield a genuine and effortless global experience for all. 从学生, 教师, 工作人员, 和父母, everyone enjoys the opportunty to grow in a culuture-rich environment, 正如研究证明的那样, contributes to building cultural empathy and a borader perspective on life. Hosting allows our students to view their own country, 文化, and lifestyle through the eyes of their exchange student. 父母, 教师, and participants themselves have recognized the exchange program as a catalyst for better self confidence, 更成熟, and developing a greater sense of curiosity.
Faithful to the promise of providing a transformative living and learning environment that nurtures hearts and minds, our students have the exciting opportunity to study abroad or host students in an exchange with other Sacred Heart schools. This is a meaningful way to experience their Sacred Heart education from a different perspective and discover the local customs and traditions of the community that they are visiting.
The Network offers many opportunities for students to study abroad, wherever they want to go!
