Hawtree Creek Middle School’s mission is to allow “students to graduate as leaders equipped with a set of skills and body of knowledge that can be applied and utilized in high school, college, and beyond”. We support this mission and extend it into the After-School Program because we guarantee that students each day will learn skills that can be taken with them in the real world and positively change their future.


The SONYC program operates Monday-Friday, 1:50-5 P.M. Although we follow the Department of Education school calendar, many trips will be planned for students to attend during holiday breaks.


The SONYC program will be serving 100 students and each participant will receive free snacks each day. If you have any questions about this program and/or would like to be a part of this exciting experience, please feel free to contact the Director.
