At HGA, we have always focused on the "whole person" and using athletics to help raise confident, self-motivated young adults. So when some of our team families developed a need for an alternative educational setting during covid, we created our e-Learning Center for them. The program was such a success in helping families find a unique balance between school, training and home life, that we continued to offer it after covid. We've just finished our 3rd year, and now, since we've had interest in the program from our recreational members, we've decided to offer it to a wider base! So our focus has broadened to supporting both team athletes and recreational students in their pursuit of an education that meets their unique needs and we are very excited about it!
This program completely replaces a classic classroom for students in grades k-8. We partner with the Oxford Virtual Academy, but we can accommodate most programs and would be happy to discuss any requests. Our academic environment is run by certified and experienced teachers in an adaptive Montessori style where the central rule is "be respectful and don't inhibit the learning of another classmate". We encourage habits of success such as time management, organization, and self-accountability. We explore a variety of experiences together through mainly field trips, but also book clubs, classroom visitors and more--In the '22-23 school year we even hit the road and went on an educational trip to Chicago! We value a growth mindset and strive to take each individual child from where they are currently to closer to their personal goals. Please watch the video above for a more comprehensive idea of the opportunities our kids have experienced!
The student's individual grade level as well as gym level are taken into account when forming their schedule. Academic workload, practice hours and many other things vary with each unique student. If you have situation-specific questions, please feel free to reach out to discuss!
Full time tuition in this program is $125/week and is billed monthly, like our class/team tuitions, automatically on the 28th of each month. It is only billed for scheduled weeks that the program is running.
