“For the sake of a single child, I would have founded the Society of the Sacred Heart”

St Madeleine Sophie Barat, foundress of the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (RSCJ)

Sacré Cœur is committed to the development of each student’s individual abilities to the highest degree possible. Our School community is therefore pleased to offer a range of scholarships across various year levels and study areas.

Our School also believes in encouraging the development of a diverse student community and living out our Sacred Heart values. We therefore offer a limited number of bursaries annually to students whose families may not otherwise be able to afford a Sacré Cœur education.

Our bursaries and scholarships are funded in part by the School in conjunction with the Sacré Cœur Foundation, supported by the generous donations of alumnae, parents, past parents, staff and community supporters, through special fundraising initiatives.

  • About

    St Madeleine Sophie Barat, (RSCJ foundress) believed in the personal strength and conviction in forming both a student’s character and intellect as she saw the importance of bringing together our head and heart in all we do. She would challenge us to be our best version of ourselves and focus on others, reminding us to care for each individual. This remains a pivotal lens through which we live out our social justice and Sacred Heart values at Sacré Cœur.
