HAP's curriculum caters to the needs of the 21st century student, utilizing small-group work, technology, and hands-on lessons in English, reading, and math. The themes and topics covered include that which was learned in 7th grade, as well as that which will be covered in the beginning of 8th grade. Material appearing on the Catholic High School Admissions Exam is also included.
Minds aren't the only thing getting a workout! Athletics and active play are an integral part of the program. HAP participants engage in some form of fitness-based activity each day -- baseball, basketball, touch football, street hockey, soccer, handball, and volleyball. All are rooted in building a sense of teamwork, camaraderie, and sportsmanship.
ACTIVITIES FOR ALL INTERESTS:
There are also a number of different electives boys can choose. Popular offerings include: art, drama, computers, community service, chess, and working on the HAP newspaper. Throw in field trips on Fridays to places like Darien Lake, Laser Tron, Griffis Sculpture Park, or the Niagara Climbing Center, and every week is HAP-pening!
Programming takes place each day from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Friday field trips are optional.
