Located in greater Boston, MA, Boston Hockey Academy (BHA) is a Tier 1 Hockey Academy, offering high-end development alongside an academic and cultural experience, unmatched by any other program.
Located in the heart of college hockey, we have programs representing three major Division 1 conferences (Hockey East – BU, BC, Northeastern, U-Lowell, Merrimack; ECAC – Harvard University; Atlantic Hockey League – Bentley University) minutes from our campus, allowing us to maximize player exposure. Additionally, Greater Boston is home to more NHL scouts than any other area in North America.
Boston Hockey Academy players receive elite training and coaching, on and off the ice, to properly prepare them for junior hockey, NCAA college, and professional hockey. Our staff and management team also ensure that players have the necessary development, exposure, and advancement opportunities to take the next step in their hockey careers.
BHA is an affordable alternative to private boarding schools, allowing students to live at home while still receiving a private education. Benefits include a longer season (August-June), a generous game schedule (50-60), specialized coaching (skating, skills, goaltending), game video review sessions, and a National Midget schedule that includes both US and Canadian prep schools. Out-of-state players receive the same benefits, along with the cultural experience of living among peers in a dormitory. Additionally, BHA is very committed to mental health awareness and support.
Academically, The Academy of Notre Dame, Tyngsboro, a Catholic private school, sponsored by the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, is based on the educational philosophy of their foundress, St. Julie Billiart. The Academy offers rigorous educational programming from Pre-K through a college-preparatory Upper School.
Their mission is to provide students with the skills necessary to thrive in a 21st century world that rewards innovation and the abilities to think critically and collaborate.
This educational model, along with the structure of the Boston Hockey Academy, will help prepare young men for careers well beyond hockey.
