Academy Program

The North Hills Prep Academy Program was designed to meet the transition needs of students.  Participation in Academy education and activities gives our student specialized knowledge and skills in a chosen field of interest.
 
THG’s North Hills Prep currently offers the following academies:
  • Academy of Information Technology and Media
  • Academy of Visual & Performing Arts
  • Academy of Math and Science
  • Academy of Culinary Arts and Industries
  • Academy of Fitness and Health Services
Friday is Academy day.  After lunch, students in each Academy meet with mentor teachers for lessons and experiences in focused areas.  Each Academy is led by a group of mentors, teachers, and specialists who provide training to students. Each Academy has developed a 100-point checklist of knowledge and skill points necessary for completion. The mentors are responsible for maintaining records and ensuring that students receive full training. Each student develops an "Academy Portfolio," which documents knowledge acquired and products created.  This portfolio can be taken by students to employers and educational institutions.
Further, successful completion of Academy training is documented on each students' North Hills Prep diploma.
