Where young women become global leaders

Student Stories

Here are what some exchange students had to say:
“One of the great things about Sacred Heart Greenwich is the opportunity to study in other Sacred Heart schools all around the world. I loved going to school in a different environment with different girls and classes and experiencing life in Sydney. I have changed a lot because of the experience. I will never forget the memories made while in Australia. I talk to my host sister, Annie, at least once a week and it’s comforting to know that I have a sister across the world. I can’t wait for her to visit our school.”

- Molly Carroll ’15 traveled to Kincoppal-Rose Bay School of the Sacred Heart in Sydney, Australia
“Because of this program I was able to experience a culture that I had previously known very little about. In the weeks leading up to my trip to Lima, I as nervous because of the language differences and all of the new food I would have to try, but these factors actually lead to some of my favorite memories. Ironically, my subpar Spanish was not a problem because every girl at El Colegio Sagrado Corazon Sophianum was always helping me to translate. I made many new friends, who I still keep in touch with, and will never forget my South American travels. I cannot wait to return.”

During the summer of 2015, I traveled on exchange to Sagrat Cor Sarria, a Sacred Heart school in Barcelona, Spain. I enjoyed experiencing a different Sacred Heart school​ and having the opportunity to learn and to communicate in Spanish.  ​There are similarities between the school​s,​ ​and even though they ​are so far apart,​ it​​ was very comforting to see those familiar things like Mater. ​ Barcelona is an amazing city and I had a great time learning about a new culture and meeting new people. I​ am ​still in touch with the ​students​ from Barcelona, and I am so happy I went on exchange! ​

"I was able to choose a variety of places to visit, and decided on Melbourne, Australia. Going to Melbourne was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I hope someday I will be able to go back. I learned a lot about myself through travel and by experiencing a new culture.  My host family gave me such an amazing experience. I know that my host sister Katie and I will be friends for a long time.”
