Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat called on our Sacred Heart communities to model respect, compassion, forgiveness and generosity.
Therefore, Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart joins other schools in the Sacred Heart Network who are called to live our daily lives promoting universal respect, in which each person is honored, loved and cared for, and where young women are educated to an understanding of and deep respect for diversity. We believe a diverse community challenges us to make God’s love visible in the world, improves our lives as we learn and grow together and affords each of us a deeper understanding of our collective humanity.
We expect all members of the Stuart community, being guided by a spirit of love, to accept individuals’ differences, which include, but are not limited to, ability, age, ethnicity, family structure, gender, learning style, race, religion, sexual orientation and socioeconomic status. We believe that all in our community should feel valued and respected, be able to share their knowledge and gifts and be given the opportunity to thrive as equal contributors in enriching life at Stuart.
All members of the Stuart administration, faculty and staff are expected to work together to create an educational environment where the Goals and Criteria of the Sacred Heart are lived and where all are committed to educate to:
A personal and active faith in God
A deep respect for intellectual values
A social awareness which impels to action
The building of community as a Christian value
Personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom
