All levels of courses at Sacred Heart Academy are college preparatory. Students are placed into classes based on individual academic ability in the core subject areas. Administrators and faculty work with you every step of the way to make sure that you have a schedule that fits you. This means that you may be in a different math level than you are in English. We want you to be successfully challenged in your classes.
