St. Joseph Hill Academy has a long tradition of offering challenging curricular programs that seek to meet the individual needs of students. To ensure that these needs are met, Hill offers students the choice of two pathways: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and Humanities. This chosen pathway will form the foundation for each student’s individualized program.
In choosing a pathway, students should consider their core area of interest and their academic strengths. There is no wrong choice. The math, science, English, and social studies requirements for New York State Regents, along with the school's religion requirement, are identical in both programs and as a result, students can change pathways up until the end of sophomore year.
Each pathway has separate requirements for graduation, however, ALL courses are available as electives regardless of the chosen pathway. Numerous AP, College, and Honors courses are available for qualified students.
