International Languages

International languages are essential to communicating as global citizens. Starting in middle school, students begin their formal study of French, Mandarin or Spanish. High school students can take a deeper dive with courses including French Literature, Hispanic Literature and Business Chinese. Our students develop practical language skills that foster a desire to experience other cultures.


Over 35% of our students decide to deepen their cultural and linguistic knowledge through our unique Network of Sacred Heart Schools exchange program. This well-established, international program offers our high school students the opportunity to study abroad at Sacred Heart schools in 41 countries such as Japan, New Zealand, Peru, France or South Korea.
