At Hawthorne Academy, we have used research, community input, and a history of successful initiatives to develop a school model that will lead us to our ultimate goals – an exemplary education for all of our students and expanded opportunities for all members of the Hawthorne community. We provide students with a K-8 curriculum that includes a variety of extracurricular offerings. Our goal is to ensure that our students leave us with a resilient foundation that includes resources, abilities, and inspiration to overcome obstacles, fulfill obligations, and to not only achieve, but surpass their expectations.
