Award Description

In 1981, the Alumnae of the Sacred Heart of Bloomfield Hills instituted the Community Service Award. This was done because of our strong support of the service program in the Upper School and because we believe in the wider community. It was decided that this award would be given annually to a graduating senior who has been exemplary in her service to others. Because they know her best, it is the faculty and senior students who participate in this selection.

The student is chosen onthe basis of three criteria:
  • Consistent responsibility and dedication to service
  • The development of a positive attitude and enthusiasm for service
  • A valuable or significant contribution to the service program

Award Description

The Feast of St. Madeleine Sophie Barat is special for many reasons, one of them being the welcoming of faculty or staff to the Alumnae and Alumni Association as honorary alumnae and alumni of Bloomfield Hills.

Honorary alumnae and alumni are those who, without any previous affiliation to a school in the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, have shown by their twelve years of service at our school:

  • Unselfish service to the students and the Religious of the Academy of the Sacred Heart,
  • Deep commitment to the Goals and Criteria for Sacred Heart Schools,
  • And true dedication to this House Built on Confidence.
