Hudson’s skills-based academic program was carefully designed for students to learn many types of vital skills, across all subject areas. Throughout their time at Hudson, they’ll not only learn important academic skills such as how to conduct qualitative and quantitative research, but crucial life skills such as how to resolve conflicts fairly, give a presentation, be an effective listener, manage their time, and be a responsible leader.
All students also receive a laptop in Grade 9 to efficiently manage time and assignments, take notes, and have all the required software needed to do schoolwork. Students also have access to MyBlueprint, an online portal to help them select courses, set goals, financially plan, write résumés and cover letters, and build a strong portfolio of their work. We even pair students with a Hudson Helper so they can successfully transition into Upper School.
