Welcome from the Dean of Academics!

Now that the school year has ended, it is time to plan for your academic future at Hebron Academy!  The goal of our academic program at Hebron Academy is to graduate students who are effective communicators, adaptable learners, responsible global citizens, and poised to lead. 



Please make sure to request all of the Official Transcripts, along with the accompanying school profile, from your previous school(s) to be sent to us at Hebron Academy.  Transcripts are important for validating courses for your graduation and also for the college counseling process. You can contact your previous schools directly or make a copy of this document to write your own letter to your former school(s).  If your Official Transcript is not in English, it must be translated into English.  There are companies that do this translation, such as World Education Service, but feel free to use the service of your choice. Official transcripts should be emailed to the Heidi Collins or sent to the school in her care.  All Official Transcripts should be sent to us no later than June 30, 2021.

Course Selection at Hebron:

Once your final transcripts are received, the Dean of Academics can begin the process of proposing your course selection for Hebron.  Course selection depends on many factors such as previous courses completed, prerequisites, past performance, interests of the student, and college goals.  You are encouraged to speak with others--teachers, parents, the college counselor--for guidance. Here is the Course Catalogue which lists the courses offered during the 2021-22 school year.

Math, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), and language classes are proficiency/placement based.  Upon arrival in the fall, all new international students are tested for proficiency to determine math and ESOL course levels.  Although this testing happens in the fall, if you have current (since the spring) English-language proficiency testing, such as TOEFL or Duolingo, please send the results to Heidi Collins, as this will help with the course selection process.

Once the initial selection of courses are made by the Dean of Academics, you will receive an email communication for the next steps in the course-selection process.  This is when students will be able to make different choices in their classes based on the initial selection.  The strength of schedule is one of the most important factors when a college determines acceptance to their school.  As a gauge, here is a link to first-year admission criteria for the University of Massachusetts.

You may reach out to the Dean of Academics or the College Counseling office at Hebron for additional advice.
