Onward Scholars at Sacred Heart High School.

Onward Scholars Program

The Onwards Scholars Program is a college access program for high school students that demonstrates strong academics, motivation, and leadership. Sacred Heart warmly welcomes our new Onward Program Director, Ms. Liliana Funes.

Ms. Funes has worked in education for more than a decade in various capacities from teaching, administration, and college access programming. She firmly believes in co-creating space with youth so they can strengthen their sense of self, leadership skills, and explore their passions in hopes of achieving their goals. 

“There is so much love and compassion in the building and I feel fortunate to be a part of that. I’m also excited to recruit more girls to experience Sacred heart as their high school home with the founding Onward Scholars Cohort Fall 2022.”
