The intention of Sacred Heart education is to address the whole person. You come as you are and are cared for with great love. The hope is to implant you a sacred love for yourself, to challenge you to be more honest, to lead you along the road of integrity.

- Life at the Sacred Heart

Boarding Program

Since coming to Woodlands, I originally was a day student but then joined the boarding school community. I was instantly welcomed in and surrounded by people I knew would be there for me 24/7. I always love our group talks, Target trips, and messing around. Since I've been here, it enables me to be my truest self, and I know I am surrounding myself with genuine people, and people that I call and consider my family. KJ Miller '25

    The Woodlands Academy Residence Life Program offers our boarding students a nurturing community that they can truly call “home.”

    Our program attracts students who have a strong desire to succeed in their studies and who wish to participate in life at a Sacred Heart school. Our residents form invaluable friendships and grow in respect for individual differences as they undertake new responsibilities in group living.

    The Residence Life Staff offer our boarding students stability and continuity 24/7. Residents live in single or double rooms on two floors of the residence hall, which is conveniently on the upper floors of the main academic building. Our residential facilities include wireless Internet access, student lounges, a kitchen, study rooms, a computer lab, shower facilities, fitness room, and a laundry room. Our Residence Life staff are present on both floors at all times. After school hours, boarding students have access to our library, music practice rooms, dining hall, and kitchen.





    As an international student, it's been incredibly hard not having the support and presence of family but living in the boarding school; you become part of a new one. Christyl Tango-an '23
