• Administrator’s MESSAGE

     Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

     Welcome to EDGE @ Hill Learning Academy!  We are excited to begin our new journey.  EDGE @ Hill is a specialized program developed to meet the individual needs of our students and will provide the necessary structure and guidance to help students achieve their behavioral and academic goals on the road to graduation.

    Every member of our staff is dedicated to building relationships and is ready to empower each child to reach their academic and behavioral goals, so they can successfully transition to the next phase of their journey, regardless of what their individual plan entails:

    •           Transition from academic struggles to academic success

    •           Transition from behavioral difficulties towards positive and appropriate behavior

    •           Transition from school to gainful employment or higher education

    •           Transition from failure identity towards identity of success

    Our mission is to provide a safe, structured and positive learning environment that will focus on the unique needs of each student. 

    We provide ongoing social skills instruction infused with rigorous academic standards with the purpose of helping students make quality decisions in their daily lives.  We focus on positive behavior supports emphasizing social interactions, social choices, and proactive decision making.

     At EDGE, we constantly strive to build a team consisting of parents, students, teachers, and administration, all with the focus of student growth and achievement.  We will work together to help your child meet their behavioral and academic goals.  Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the administration if you have questions. 

    I look forward to getting to know you and your child as we begin this journey.
