Sacred Heart Academy Reviews

Sacred Heart Academy provides strong academics; however, it lacks to provide teachers who encourage their students to develop healthy habits regarding their personal life. Although there are a few amazing teachers who go beyond the academic aspect and put effort into caring about their students. The social environment created by the students can become slightly toxic to others. The help provided by the teachers after school is great but there is a lack of a family community. There are many opportunities to get help from students during a study period if a student is not comfortable going to a teacher. There is a lack of diversity amongst the students that are not identified by the administration but rather praised believing diversity exists.

Sacred Heart Academy focuses strongly on academics. They offer a variety of challenging courses and after school opportunities. Although academics are important, Scared Heart lacks the social aspect most highschoolers look for. There is no interaction with boys, not outside connections, and small cliches are very popular. Academically Sacred Heart is strong, but small cliches and tiny friend groups make it hard to feel like you fit in.
The school promotes Christian values while providing a top tier education. Whether you are into science, theater, sports, or maybe all three, Sacred Heart ensures you can make the most out of your time here. The teachers genuinely care about you and it is easy to form good relationships with them, making the environment at school enjoyable. The climate of the students is relatively warm, but like at every school there is mild cliques and drama. However the school works to combat that as best as it can.
