Welcome back as we head into a new decade! I hope everyone had a relaxing and productive break.
January is very busy time as first semester is wrapping up, the Prep teams are on the road, the varsity/ junior varsity hockey players are getting ready for play offs with their respective teams, and the lacrosse program is gearing up for their quickly approaching spring season.
The key to success is time management! The “I” in the HILL is so important at this time. Coaches, teachers and admin are all available to support the student-athletes; it is the responsibility of the student-athlete to ask for the support when needed. Prioritizing free time and being productive when no one is watching is going to yield success during this busy time. It is challenging but buying into the process will reap so many long term benefits!
Have a great week!
Life at the Hill and Upcoming Events.

Semester One Exams Final Exams for Semester 1 will take place at The Hill Academy starting Tuesday January 21st and finishing Friday January 24th. Please do not book travel or make arrangements during or after a student’s exam. We will not accommodate exams written in other locations and students may not choose to write exams earlier or later than the designated date and time.

There is a PD Day on January 27th and we reserve the right to schedule an exam on that day if necessary. Thank you for your cooperation!
