Selects Academy at Bishop Kearney

Program Information

The program will bring elite youth hockey players from around the world to live and learn at Bishop Kearney while competing in the country’s highest level of girls’ hockey.

Selects Academy @ Bishop Kearney High School provides young women with an incredibly unique opportunity to live in a boarding school environment, receive a top flight education and optimize the potential to achieve their goals in becoming Division I level student-athletes. The school's model mirrors that of a long standing New England boarding experience, but it also includes more opportunity for both on and off ice development. Our place in the market proves very unique, as the school provides an outstanding education in a boarding environment, via Bishop Kearney HS, along with a full season hockey program that focuses on collegiate EXPOSURE, student-athlete development and prep for becoming an NCAA student-athlete. The school's brand new, state of the art dormitory allows the girls to learn and grow in every facet of their lives. It is equipped with technology and provides a learning space allowing students to maximize opportunity both in the classroom and with regards to the sport that they love. Selects Academy @ Bishop Kearney proudly provides an experience that will prove both life changing and life lasting for our young women. Please feel free to request more information through this page by contacting Brent Hill or Julie Knerr.
