The North American Hockey Academy provides an environment where young student-athletes are challenged to seek their personal best. The mission of this high performance program is to provide an experience that focuses on the mental, physical and emotional development of the athlete.
At the Academy, our athletes are challenged to learn, grow, and improve themselves in all aspects of their lives. Our faculty and staff understand the challenges our athletes encounter and provide unparalleled support in each athlete's growth and development. This philosophy of challenge and support is the underpinning of everything we do.
The objectives of the North American Hockey Academy are to provide an alternative route for elite female hockey players to receive an excellent education while participating in a high performance hockey program. The goal is to assist each student-athlete to excel academically and athletically, developing the best possible college candidates.
The North American Hockey Academy's program operates approximately five months, giving young athletes and their parents a viable option to full-year programs. In this way, students may live at home for approximately half the school year, attend their local school and have an elite competitive and developmental athletic experience while maintaining a high standard of education. The goal is for each student to have an outstanding and individualized experience in both their academic and athletic programs.
The North American Hockey Academy provides a small group setting for students and follows either the curriculum of the student's sending school. or our own curriculum. This setting allows for a much broader and deeper coverage of subject matter and all students are encouraged to take an active role in decisions about subject matter. To compliment the small classes, students are brought together for presentations, speaking assignments, foreign language development, problem solving and peer critiquing. It is the goal of the North American Hockey Academy that through this program students will have a better understanding of their subjects, will become more responsible in their education, have a good handle on time management and self-discipline, and will be improved students upon return to their sending school. Our twelve year track record proves our students are well prepared for the independent learning situations they will face at college.
