Once the school year is over, it is time to plan for your academic future at Hebron Academy!
Please make sure to request copies of your Official Transcript, along with the accompanying school profile, for your records at Hebron Academy. Transcripts must be official, meaning signed by an official at the previous school. Transcripts are essential for choosing a course schedule, validating courses for your graduation, and are required to engage in the college counseling process. Many schools have a form on their website for this purpose, or you can make a copy of this document to write your own letter to your former school(s). What we need for students entering:
Grades 6 - 8: final transcript or report card from any grades attended 6 - 8
Grade 9: final transcript or report card from grade 8
Grades 10 - PG: final transcripts since grade 9
If transcripts are in a language other than English, they MUST be translated into English. If your Official Transcript is not in English, please make sure to get your transcripts translated. There are companies that do this translation, such as World Education Service, but feel free to use the service of your choice.
Course Selection at Hebron:
The courses for grades 6 - 8 are a set curriculum, so there is no choice in courses. For grades 9 - PG, 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. Previous courses completed, prerequisites, past performance, interests of the student, and college goals will be taken into consideration when determining courses for the fall. Here is a link to this year’s Course Catalogue. Students are encouraged to speak with others--teachers, parents, and college counselors--for guidance. Once the Dean of Academics finishes a proposed course request list, she will enter it on myHebron and communicate with the family. Final schedules and textbook information is available in August.
Math, ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages), and language classes are proficiency-placement based. For example, if Algebra 1 was completed in middle school, ninth graders typically begin with geometry. All new international students are tested for English proficiency to determine math or ESOL course levels. Click here for proficiency testing information. We must receive these results before doing course selection and scheduling.
We call Hebron Academy’s LMS (Learning Management System) “myHebron”, and it is the place where parents and students can log into the school, see student progress, view school information, and connect with the Hebron Academy community. The system is hosted by a company called Blackbaud, and that company is imposing new login and password requirements. These new requirements will provide greater security for all user data. In the next several weeks, we will be sending out instructional emails to parents to help them with this transition. The entire process should take about five to ten minutes to complete.
Both parents and students have independent myHebron accounts, but these accounts are linked. This way, parents can log in to their accounts to view their student's status, manage file & form submissions, see classroom activities and monitor class progress. Students will log in to their own accounts to do daily schoolwork, connect with other members of the Hebron community, receive notifications, follow teams, and more. You will find important information regarding the upcoming school year posted on the Parents Resources board throughout the summer, so please continue to check it regularly.
Usernames and Passwords
User names must now be valid, and unique, email addresses. If your myHebron user name is already your email address, then there will be no user name change. However, if your myHebron user name is your first name + last name, such as “JohnSmith”, it will be replaced with a complete email address, such as “firstname.lastname@example.org”. When the time comes, you will be sent an email notification with your new user name and instructions on how to complete the conversion process.
If there is not a valid, and unique, email address associated with each user in the family, we will attempt to reach out to the family to collect missing addresses. Each login will require its own email address, so those that are missing will be unable to log into the system.
How Do I Use myHebron?
You can access myHebron through our website via the link at the top right of the homepage called MYHEBRON. Once logged in for the first time, a message will appear introducing some of the features of myHebron. You can also access this information any time by selecting “Getting Started” after clicking on your name in the top right corner of the page.
During the summer, there is important information that is posted on the Parents’ Resources Board, which is accessed by clicking on Resources along the grey bar at the top after you log onto myHebron.
The Parents Resources Board contains information such as:
Health Center information
College Counseling information
Summer Reading and Summer AP Coursework
International Student Testing Information
Additionally, there will be some forms to complete. These will show as a notification across the top of the myHebron screen. Many of these forms are very simple and quick to complete, so don't be intimidated! We will be sending out email notifications to the parents to make sure that everything is submitted in time for students to arrive in the fall.
Initial class scheduling will be made over the summer. Please note that final class enrollments may be affected by placement exams or by academic staff assessment, and may change through the first weeks of classes.
