Flex Scheduling & Clubs

SHCS Middle School
Our SHCS Middle School is alive with incredible energy, learning, and fellowship among our students and faculty. Our middle school teachers provide a rigorous curriculum that promotes full engagement in the classroom and much teamwork. Our core classes include Language Arts (reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary), Mathematics, Science, Social studies, and Religion. But there is so much more! Our middle school students have lessons in Foreign Language, Virtuous Leadership, and Physical Education. In addition, they have Flex Scheduling, Club Day, House Challenges, and WIN study hall. 
 
What is FLEX SCHEDULING?
Knowing that there are many other lessons to learn, Sacred Heart School is excited to offer Flex Scheduling for students (Grades 5-8).  Our Flex program allows our MS students the ability to choose electives that interest them and push them beyond the typical classroom experience.  Then, every FOUR weeks, students can participate in a new Flex Program class. Classes are led by faculty, staff, volunteer professionals, and community leaders - all sharing their gifts and talents. Our Flex program classes meet once per week.

WHAT IS SACRED HEART CLUB DAY?
