Edgewood High School of the Sacred Heart is a private high school located in Madison, Wisconsin. Part of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Madison, it is run by the Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters. In the 2006-2007 School year, it enrolled approximately 600 students. In recent years the enrollment has been on the rise, with a waiting list to enroll. Also on the Edgewood campus are Edgewood College and Edgewood Campus School, an elementary and middle school.



Recently celebrating its 125th anniversary, Edgewood has history dating back to Samuel Mazzuchelli. The school began in 1871 as Saint Regina Academy, an all-girls boarding school. Governor Cadwallader Washburn donated his official residence, "Edgewood Villa", after losing a bid for re-election. Saint Regina Academy continued to operate until a fire in 1895 destroyed the original building. Less than a year after the fire the school re-opened as the Academy of the Sacred Heart. Boys were first admitted in 1924. In 1927, the original building was completed according to the design of architect Albert Kelsey, son-in-law of Governor Cadwallader Washburn, under the name Edgewood High School of the Sacred Heart.


The Edgewood curriculum encompasses 128 credit eligible courses across twelve departments. The school also teaches AP (Advanced Placement) courses, including Calculus AB, Calculus BC, Spanish, French, Latin, English literature, English Language, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Biology, European History, U.S. History, Physics: Mechanics, Physics: Electricity and Magnetism. During the 2006-7 year 1/3 of juniors and 1/2 of seniors took at least one AP course.
