Sacred Heart College is a community that strives to create a culture of learning in a Christ-centred, disciplined environment. Students are encouraged to pursue excellence in all areas within a rich faith tradition. Uniform is compulsory.
Facilities: The college has developed a high quality physical environment providing a variety of learning spaces and facilities that give students every opportunity for academic and sporting success. Modern facilities are blended harmoniously with the college’s unique architectural heritage. The original college building was designed by the distinguished architect Robin Boyd and Boyd’s curtain wall of glass is of particular significance.

After an extensive curriculum review, the college implemented a revitalised curriculum structure and program in 2013. This includes broader subject offerings especially at Years 9 and 10. It also creates the opportunity for students to access VCE studies in Year 10. In Years 11 and 12, students have an extensive list of VCE units to choose from as well as a range of Vocational Education and Training courses offered in conjunction with Holmesglen TAFE.Sport and outdoor education: There is the opportunity for all girls to participate in physical activity and gain a range of sports skills through the Physical Education program. The college also provides the opportunity to compete in both intra-school and interschool sports and carnivals. All students participate in a graded Outdoor Education Camp Program from Year 7 through to Year 10.

Extra-curricular activities: An extensive music program has been implemented and instrumental tuition is available in many instruments as well as voice. There are several instrumental ensembles as well as a brass band and a developing orchestra. Students participate in public speaking, debating, chess, school productions, aerobics and several social justice groups. Excursions, fieldwork and optional national and international travel augment the curriculum program. Students participate in a range of national subject-based competitions as well as Model United Nations Assemblies and Youth Parliament programs each year.

Student welfare programs: The Code of Conduct policy at the college is clearly presented and based on courtesy and respect for others. The new curriculum structure has incorporated a Pastoral Period, in which a variety of student issues and concerns are addressed. A co-ordinated approach towards supporting students involves home-room teachers, year-level co-ordinators, student counsellors and a Deputy Principal of Student Well-being. The college also has a full-time careers co-ordinator.
