Stuart Hall High School operates by a block schedule; theology, ethics and social justice classes are mandatory for graduation. Heavy emphasis is placed on community involvement, service, critical thinking, respect for intellectual values, and self-development.

Each Stuart Hall High School student completes four years of English, history, mathematics, theology, and philosophy/religion; three years of lab science and international language; two years of physical education and fine arts; and one year of computer science.

As part of the Schools of the Sacred Heart network, SHHS has accepted the IB curriculum, and will be teaching it in the 2016-17 school year. Students also have a choice of AP courses, including art history, biology, calculus, chemistry, comparative government/politics, computer science, English language/composition, environmental science, European history, French language, French literature, human geography, music theory, physics, psychology, Spanish language, Spanish literature, studio art, US government/politics and US history.
