Where young women become global leaders
Outreach
Summer Outreach: Established in 1991 
 
“I think it’s very valuable that Summer Outreach has a strong academic component because it helps students to strengthen what they have learned throughout the school year.” -- Jade Cohen ’17, Sacred Heart Greenwich student and Summer Outreach Counselor.

Krystal, an elementary school student from Stamford, CT, says she keeps coming back because she gets to make new friends and go swimming. Her favorite activity was making a “recipe for friendship and peace.” Her special recipe: “two cups of love plus a little bit of fun makes a true friend.”

Tuesday HeadStart Enrichment Program
The children from the Carver Center Day Care/HeadStart Program, accompanied by the staff, spend Tuesday mornings at Sacred Heart. Our purpose is to support the curriculum of the program and to provide additional enrichment activities for the children. The volunteers from Sacred Heart are present and past parents and retired CSH faculty. Educational games, story reading, crafts and rhythmic exercise are elements of the program.

At least once or twice a month the children are taken on field trips. They visit museums, the town firehouse and library, farms and, their favorite, the Maritime Center in Norwalk. Guest speakers and specialists come to Sacred Heart to make presentations to the children.

Volunteer for the Tuesday or Saturday Outreach Program.
