Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Academy is a classical pre-K-12 school and Chesterton Network High School in the Catholic tradition. Founded in 2000 as a result of a grass-roots movement of parents, the academy’s high school became a member of the Chesterton Schools Network in 2020. We offer a rigorous, integrated classical program for grades pre-K-12 and our curriculum is centered on the Incarnation of Jesus Christ. Focusing on the classics, the school develops complete thinkers who learn to draw on faith and reason for the purpose of building a culture of life. Learn more about OLSHA-CNS at www.olsha.org and the growing national Chesterton Schools Network at www.chestertonschoolsnetwork.org.


We strive to form saints and leaders rooted in the immutable truths of the Catholic faith, appreciative of their Western heritage and religious traditions, and inspired to bear witness to others of the hope that is within them. We challenge each student to pursue perfection in holiness and excellence in academics as we strive to rebuild the culture through truth, faith, and service.
