Academy Application for New Participants

Thank you for your interest in The Academies at North Hills. These programs represent an optional blueprint of course choices that align with different educational goals and aspirations. They establish a set of objectives for student career exploration through prescribed coursework, extra-curricular involvement, and extended educational opportunities. Students who have a talent for and deep interest in the focused curriculum of a particular academy are encouraged to apply to it.

There are two parts to your application.
  1. Student Academy Application - Discuss your enrollment with a parent/guardian and complete the online Student Academy Application
  2. Academy Entrance Recommendation - All applicants who are applying for the first time must obtain a recommendation from a North Hills faculty member to be admitted into the Academies at North Hills. We strongly suggest that you contact a faculty member whose subject area relates to the academy in which you are interested in enrolling. Please provide them with this webpage link, so that they can submit your recommendation electronically. We advise you to approach this faculty member in a formal manner as he/she will be asked to speak to your positive attitude, effective communication skills, classroom behavior, initiative, punctuality and dependability. You are encouraged to contact your school counselor, if you need assistance in preparing to obtain your recommendation.
