Sacred Heart Academy's curriculum provides each student with a well-rounded academic foundation upon which to build. In addition to core requirements that provide broad exposure across several disciplines, an extensive selection of elective courses allows students to pursue special areas of interest. Honors and Advanced Placement courses are available for those students who qualify.

Students are encouraged to plan their courses of study with advisors, teachers, and parents, mindful of the fulfillment of basic course requirements, intended college major, interests, and academic strengths. Each spring, students meet with their faculty advisors to plan the next year of study. The college counselors assist Juniors in preparing their senior year curriculum.
