The school year is divided into two semesters; each semester into two quarters. Progress is evaluated at the end of each quarter. The report card envelope, for the first three quarters, is to be signed by a parent or guardian and returned to school promptly. The June report card is given to the student on the last day of school if all fines, fees, and tuition are paid in full.
Sacred Heart uses PowerSchool, an on-line grade book tool to facilitate communication with parents on student progress. Grades are updated weekly and parents are encouraged to go online to see their child's progress. Parents are should contact their child's teacher if they have any questions about their child's grades. Additionally, in order to keep parents informed of student progress, tests may be sent home periodically for a parent signature. If their child's conduct is a 3 or lower the teacher will notify the parents.
Sacred Heart uses the standardized recommended grading scale from the Archdiocese of Detroit for Grades 3-8.

Honor roll is established each quarter naming those students in grades five through eight who have demonstrated academic excellence, together with consistent effort and good conduct. Academic and Citizenship Honors are posted at the end of each quarter. At the end of the year, students will be recognized for each quarter they have received academic and citizenship honors at a special assembly.
The following criteria will be used:
Academic Honor Roll: A's and B's in all classes, including homeroom, and 1's and 2's in behavior.
Citizenship Honor Roll: Ones or Twos must be carried in citizenship for ALL classes and homeroom. No grades can be lower than a C.
