HEAT Academy: The Impact

Beyond the positive impact the HEAT Academy has on the daily lives of our students and their families, the program has also proven to be an effective tool in supporting their academic goals. As evidenced in our annual HEAT Academy Reports, our students are outperforming the rest of the student body at their respective schools by considerable margins across all grades and subject matters. When one considers that the majority of the students targeted for the HEAT Academy are those that have consistently performed in the lowest 25th percentile, the outcome is staggering. In addition to their superior academic performance, HEAT Academy students are also attending school at a higher percentage in large part due to the program and its many incentives.
