Located in Newton, Massachusetts, Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart was founded in 1879. In the Roman Catholic tradition, it provides girls between fifth and 12th grade with an extensive academic experience. Along with running classes in foreign language, history, and science, it also hosts numerous athletic and arts programs.
The school has always recognized the importance of technology in preparing youth for the future. One of the first institutions in the Boston area to participate in the Learning with Laptops program, it has also been on the forefront of wireless technology and Internet solutions for two decades. During their middle school years, pupils attend classes that enhance their skills at keyboarding, spreadsheets, Flash animation, and website design. After reaching ninth grade, students go more in depth with software development, network security, and data management. They also get to express themselves through digital photography and blogging.
