Sacred Hearts Academy partners with Leeward Community College and Chaminade University of Honolulu to offer introductory level college courses on campus. The Early College Program is an initiative designed to allow more high school students to earn college credits before graduating from high school while meeting high school graduation requirements (dual credits).
Taking college courses while in high school is an opportunity for our students to graduate with advanced college-standing and to be better prepared for their future degree and career options. The Early College Program is open to Grades 10-12.

The Sacred Hearts Academy Advisory Program begins in 7th Grade and continues through the students' senior year. Advisory nurtures compassion and moral responsibility; person, social and emotional development; community building; and academic skill development.
Advisory classes are led by faculty members who serve as students' mentors and advocates. The faculty members are called advisors. Students develop supportive relationships with these teachers and their peers within the advisory. Advisories become a safe space where students can try out new ideas and explore their own identities. In the process, they cultivate a sense of self: academically, emotionally and socially.
