The Curriculum

The academic program is college preparatory. A maximum load is six classes per day, culminating in a maximum of six credits each year.

Students may select Honors Courses in several subject areas. Certain courses are designated specifically as honors courses. In other cases, a highly motivated student may contract with the staff of a standard college preparatory course to complete honors-level assignments and achieve the honors designation for that course.

HA Prep Academy offers several Advanced Placement courses per student request based off AP testing.

Mission Statement

HA Prep Academy inspires academic/career/athletic success, exposes our students to opportunities academically/professionally/athletically and educates them while fostering healthy relationships (grades 9-12) in a small, structured and nurturing environment of accountability and support.

Non-discriminatory Statement

Rules for acceptance and participation in all activities and programs are the same for all without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, handicap, or national origin. This institution is primarily a special agency geared to meet the needs of the individual student, 14 through 18 years of age, of average to high intelligence with minimal physical, social, emotional, or behavioral limitations, and geared only to take care of those types of conditions. Individuals with other disabilities or handicaps will be referred to other institutions with appropriate services.

“A consistent and healthy focus on our mission; the thoughtful consideration given to school policies and how our students benefit from a carefully maintained balance of nurture and structure; the genuine devotion we have for our community and student body; the wide range of programs we provide for such a small student population, ensuring attention, accountability, and self-reliance really defines what we embody at HA Prep”
