Jean Frazier Leadership Institute




The Jean Frazier Leadership Institute at Sacred Heart Schools promotes a culture of leadership by providing authentic leadership experiences that create empowered leaders who seek to serve others. We believe that leadership can be taught through deliberate study and practice. The JFLI has created a four-part approach to leadership development including social emotional learning, skill-based learning, practice, and reflection. The three pillars of the Jean Frazier Leadership Institute (Leadership, Service, Financial Literacy) combine to provide a comprehensive leadership development program that inspires students to discover their passion and their purpose.


Leadership at Sacred Heart Preschool

Sacred Heart Preschool believes that the earlier students can learn leadership, the sooner they can make a positive difference. Through a curriculum framework that supports developing the whole child and emphasizing social-emotional learning, SHP is creating caring, compassionate and competent leaders.


SHP has embraced multi-generational mentorship to provide tangible role models for students. The Ursuline Sisters of Louisville visit SHP classrooms periodically and together they participate in activities to build community. Level 3, 4 and 5 students at Sacred Heart Model School read to the preschool students and freshmen theology students from Sacred Heart Academy visit throughout the year. These mentor opportunities allow for the preschool children to see leadership in action from a broad range of ages, skills and groups.
