Hendricks Community Academy provides a strong educational program for students that supports their social and emotional growth. We strive to provide a caring environment that fosters a positive attitude towards learning.  Our Making A Difference Everywhere program reinforces leadership skills with students through basketball in grades 5-8. The Sit Stay Read program encourages students to develop an understanding and connection with animals while improving reading skills. Our technology program, Think through Math, reinforces and assists students in grades 3-8 with math. The music, band and art classes support students in addressing their creative talents. We are partnered with Hubbard Street Dance Company which implements dance workshop in grades 2-5 . There is an autism cluster program and a blended Head Start. The additional resources at Hendricks helps to produce a well rounded education for all students.
