The Hill Academy is dedicated to placing the student-athlete to the institution that meets their athletic and academic potential.100% of our graduates have been accepted to post-secondary institutions. Alumni from The Hill Academy are currently attending and thriving at top academic and athletic institutions across North America.
At The Hill Academy the student-athletes receive individual attention from our Guidance department. Through individual attention, the Guidance department forms a personal relationship in order to both ensure the student-athlete is on the right track towards graduating and meeting the requirements of their desired school, but also in assisting in the process and finding an institution that would be the perfect fit for the student-athlete.
The Hill Academy only offers Academic Level classes to ensure that the student-athlete meets the 16 core course requirement of the NCAA. One of our guidance counsellors specializes in Canadian universities, whereas the other guidance counsellor specializes in American universities in order to make certain the student-athletes meet the eligibility requirements of their desired school.
The NCAA has established a National Clearinghouse from which all decisions regarding an athlete's intital eligibility at an institution will be determined. If the athlete is not registered and certified through the Clearinghouse he or she will not be able to participate in Division I or II athletics. Players interested in a US Division I or II University/College must be registered and certified by the NCAA Clearinghouse.
