Block Scheduling

Sacred Heart Academy operates on a four block schedule each day, alternating between White Days (blocks A, B, C, D) and Blue Days (blocks E, F, G, H). Each block is approximately 90-minutes long. On blue days students have a TEAM period- a time to meet with teachers, work on group projects, go to the library, or have a quiet study. School Masses and assemblies also occur during TEAM period, so class instruction is not interrupted.
