A member of the international Network of Sacred Heart Schools, NCDS provides a college preparatory curriculum for highly motivated girls from more than 65 communities in the Greater Boston area. At all grade levels, the program is designed to be developmentally appropriate. The middle school curriculum (grades 5-8) emphasizes the development of writing, reading and math skills, while the upper school program (grades 9-12) culminates in Advanced Placement classes in the major disciplines during the junior and senior years. Qualified pupils may earn college credit for courses taken at nearby Boston College. The religious studies program instructs students in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures. Outside of the classroom, students engage in peer and Eucharistic ministry, retreats and weekly chapel services. In addition, all girls perform community service: 40 hours during junior year, required class projects in the other grades.
