What is the Hornet Academy?
The Hornet Academy is a transitional program for all incoming 9th grade students to Hillside High School. The program is designed to create a smaller, more personal learning community that will foster high academic and social success. The Hornet Academy also provides support for students needing academic remediation while providing transitional classes and programs for all freshmen to promote success throughout high school. The rigorous nature of the Hornet Academy classes will prepare all freshmen for one of the four pathway options in grades 10-12. The pathway options are International Baccalaureate Academy, Business and Finance Academy, JROTC and Success Academy.
