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.

In addition to many Honors and AP courses offered on campus, we offer advanced online classes should your daughter have an interest that we don’t currently offer. In addition to weekly service scheduled every Thursday morning where each student participates in a local service project off campus in small multi-age groups, every Upper School student participates in an 8-day experiential learning opportunity every year in locations around the globe using the Design Thinking process. Through the lens of the Goals and Criteria, students gain awareness of the world around them.
