SOFIE (Schools Online For Interactive Education) is the website of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools. It serves as an information point about the association of twenty-one Sacred Heart schools across the United States, including clickable maps and information about the schools, as well as frequently updated news and events.
Guided by the global vision of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat, the Network of Sacred Heart Schools is an association of Catholic independent schools and the Province, which advances the mission of the Society of the Sacred Heart. The Network provides services and programs that promote and stimulate creative education and leadership framed by the Goals and Criteria for Sacred Heart Schools in the United States.
In the Goals and Criteria of 2005 -- the document which defines the scope and vision of Sacred Heart education in the United States--the present generation of Sacred Heart educators has expressed its commitment to educate students 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, and
- personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.
