Academics

At HTI we strive to provide the perfect balance between hockey and academics, in which student-athletes can be most successful. We concentrate on encouraging our 

players to be successful in the classroom, as well as on the ice. Since our goal is to provide the opportunity for our players to attend NCAA or CIS universities, we educate them on how important their academics are in their journey to  become independent individuals, who will not only play hockey, but also will have a different set of skills to build their careers in their future.

Since our hockey schedule is very busy and we have players that are attending our program from all over the world, at HTI we offer High School and Post Graduate education.

Ontario Secondary School Diploma Program: Virtual High School

Players are attending organized classes in classrooms at HTI Residence. Classes and study hours are organized by Maggie Jones (HTI – Academic Advisor)
