HICKORY HILL ACADEMY
CULTIVATING COMPASSIONATE LEADERS
Hickory Hill Academy cultivates children’s growth in a stimulating and compassionate environment. Our supportive teachers engage the curiosities and needs of each child, fostering self-esteem, the confidence needed to benefit from our robust academic programs, and the interest to embark on a journey of life-long learning. Our focus on empathy, character, and individual well-being encourages our children to envision how they will serve their community beyond the expanse of our campus.
Our programs provide engaging and hands-on learning opportunities that inspire students to love learning. Instruction and growth is individualized to challenge and nurture students where they need it.
With low teacher-to-student ratios, our highly educated and qualified teachers go the extra mile in getting to know each student and their family. Monthly school events also allow our community to connect and form life-long relationships.
Nothing beats our growing 10-acre campus blooming with wonderful learning opportunities both indoors and out. Our animals, gardens, school forest, playgrounds, sports court, beautiful classrooms and buildings, sports field, and new K-8th grade building combine to give students an enriching experience.
REGISTRATION AND ENROLLMENT
New enrollments are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. A non-refundable registration fee is charged per child. Children may be placed on a "wait list" until a desired opening becomes available. Once placement is accepted by parents, parents sign an enrollment agreement and complete additional forms for their child's file. Processing enrollment applications for the Summer on the Farm and for the Academic School Year occurs in January and February each year. However, applications for enrollment may be submitted at any time during the year.
