Augmented Kindergarten Program
To provide extra academic options to the community, Hawthorn Academy is offering an Augmented Kindergarten Program for the 2019-2020 school year. Students must be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2019 and must already be registered for half-day kindergarten at Hawthorn Academy to be eligible to participate in the optional, tuition-based program. As explained below, space in the Program is limited and placements will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.
Students who are accepted into the Program will receive nearly four additional hours of instruction every school day. Enrollees begin and end school at the same time as the School's 1st-6th grade students at the South Jordan Campus and 1st-9th grade students at the West Jordan Campus.
Hawthorn Academy will email out applications to the Program to all registered kindergarten students starting on Friday, February 15, at 10 a.m. Applications will be in the form of a SurveyMonkey survey and will be submitted electronically. Applications will be accepted by the School on a first-come, first-served basis. The School anticipates that it will begin sending out notifications to those accepted into the Program as early as February 20.
There will be one full-day kindergarten class at each campus of Hawthorn Academy. When spots in the full-day class are filled, a wait list will be started and students will be prioritized in the order in which their applications were submitted.
Cost for the Program is $2,950 a year, which can be paid in full or in equal monthly installments, August through May. A 10% discount is available for parents and guardians who pay the yearly tuition in full at one time. There also is a one-time, non-refundable registration fee of $100 for students who enroll in the Program. The full Terms and Conditions of the Program can be read here.
