Since 1974, Project Term has been an integral part of the total curriculum in the Upper School. This unique program provides an opportunity for students to explore and learn in a focused unit of study. Incorporating the Goals and Criteria of a Sacred Heart education, all Upper School students at the Academy participate in Project Term. Participants gain exposure to and increase awareness of various communities and cultures as well as hands-on learning in a variety of fields. Recent projects included trips to the Amazon, Dominican Republic and France. The 2019-2020 offerings are detailed in the Project Term Booklet.
