“Preadolescence represents a dynamic time in a girl’s life, as there is a remarkable amount of growth and change that takes place during the middle school years,” said Olson, who has headed Sacred Heart’s Middle School since 2005. “While these are exciting years, they can also seem unsettling to the girls (and their parents), as they navigate significant brain development, physical growth and the onset of hormones. Providing the right support, both at home and school, is essential.”

Sacred Heart Greenwich, founded in 1848, is an independent Catholic college preparatory school for girls from kindergarten through twelfth grade, with a coed preschool program called The Barat Center for Early Childhood Education.
