Students develop a personal and active faith in God (Goal I). Sacred spaces are available for student reflection, regardless of religious affiliation; in fact, the Academy of the Sacred Heart has often been called "a Catholic school for children of all faiths." In addition to the religion instruction offered at every level, opportunities for spiritual growth abound, ranging from formal all-school liturgies to prayer services and daily espacio, a time for silent reflection during the academic day. A theology course is required annually and weekly service is part of the Upper School schedule.
UNIQUE ACADEMIC OFFERINGS:
In addition to many Honors and AP courses offered on campus, Sophia Connect AP classes are available online. Sophia Connect AP courses are planned and taught by educators in the Network of Sacred Heart Schools and include many AP options. In addition to weekly service scheduled every Thursday morning, each year every student in the Upper School participated in an 8-day experiential learning opportunity in locations around the globe using the Design Thinking process.
