Duke of Edinburgh

Learning Beyond the Walls

Sacred Heart is committed to learning beyond the walls of the classroom which is one reason why Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award program is such a great fit for us. 

The program is the world’s leading youth achievement award and we make it available to our junior and senior high students. It equips all young people for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability, skills and interests. The Award encourages young people to set their own goals and challenges and pushes them to their personal best in the areas of service, skills development, physical recreation, and an adventurous journey.  Gold level participants will also become involved in a residential project.
