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

Planned Giving

The story of Mater Admirabilis teaches us that many of the most beautiful gifts can be better appreciated after the passage of time. Many members of our community look back fondly on their years at Woodlands and commit themselves to helping Woodlands far into the future. It is because of this farsightedness that those who commit to a planned gift become members of the Mater Admirabilis Society. They are remembered annually at the Mater Admirabilis liturgy, and are recognized in the annual report in perpetuity. We invite you to find out more and build your legacy by investing in a Woodlands Academy, Sacred Heart education. Please email Kathleen Reidy '77 or call 847.234.4300.

We thank them for their fidelity to the life lived at Sacred Heart.
