Its present enrollment is drawn from the greater Chicago area as well as several other states and international countries including China, Mexico, Malaysia, Poland, Philippines, Guatemala, England and Belgium.
Woodlands Academy is part of a worldwide network of Sacred Heart Schools that spans 19 cities in the United States and 44 countries around the world. Its students have the opportunity to participate in an exchange program allowing them to attend a quarter or a semester at one of the other Sacred Heart schools.
With its long tradition of welcoming students from all over the world, Woodlands Academy's international student program provides the academic support and social opportunities that help the students make lifelong friends and earn a place at a U.S. college or university upon graduating.
The theme for the 2013-14 school year is The Resilient Sacred Heart Woman. Graduating women of courage, confidence and compassion is Woodlands Academy's four-year goal. Founded in 1858, its identity is rooted in a desire to inspire young hearts and minds to excel, to lead lives of integrity and to serve.
