Ad Multos Annos

Since this year marks thecentennial of ourAcademy and the fifty-thirdanniversary of the founding of our Alumnae Association, a brief history of both may be of interest to our members and their guests.

Less than ten years after the incorporationof the Sisters of Charity at Convent Station the Academyof the Sacred Heart was opened as the second private academy established by the Community on property outside their original foundation at Convent. Thus, it can be seen that the history of the Academy is almost as long as the history of the Sisters of Charity in the state of New Jersey.

In the history of the Missions of the Community in New Jersey by Sister Mary Agnes Sharkey it is noted as a “singular fact that while there has been little, if any, change in the material aspect of the Academy, the encroachment of other buildings preventing the acquisition of property contiguous to it, and thus making enlargement impossible, yet educational advancement has kept pace with the march of time, and the Academy of the Sacred Heart ranks today as a peer of other secondary institutions in the state of New Jersey.”

Maintaining the best traditions of its earliest principals the Academy offered a complete course of study in the primary and grammar grades for both boys and girls and its high school for girls a full classical course of study as well as the opportunity to pursue scientific and commercial schedules. As of June 1966 the primary and grammar grades were phased out and the Academy today is a high school for girls only.

Throughout the years our Alma Mater has trained and is training women in social and civic life with a sense of responsibility and cooperation with local and Community activities. To this loyalty and interest is due the founding of our Alumnae Association in 1914 and the founding of the Mothers’ Guild in 1937.

On the evening of November 2, 1914 at the suggestion of Sister M. Clarissa Flanagan, a student in the first class to be graduated from the Academy of the Sacred Heart and in 1914 a member of its faculty, a meeting of graduates and former pupils was held at Academy Hall for the purpose of forming an Alumnae Association. A constitution was adopted and signed by all members present, and Mrs. James G. Wallace elected as the first president. Following the business meeting, the members repaired to the Chapel where Bendiction of the Blessed Sacrament was given.

In 1937 a most successful Reunion Tea was held at the Academy as a result of which, through the efforts of two of our Alumnae members, the Mothers’ Guild was established. Since a large number of students, many of them children of former graduates, attend the Academy the members of the Alumnae Association and of the Mothers’ Guild are upholding traditions that the inaugurators of the institution bequeathed to later generations a precious heritage.

In June 1928 the Alumnae began the raising of a fund to found a scholarship in our own Academy and its successful completion was announced on June 4, 1932. This scholarship has been awarded once every four years since that time to the Catholic girl graduate of any local school who wins first place in the prescribed examination.

The many interests of our Association are known to our Alumnae who support them through affairs such as this Reunion Luncheon. We realize “that while much has been accomplished, much remains to be done.”

As the Academy enters upon its second hundred years, may we ask your continued participation and cooperation in furthering her work and her ideals.
