Academic Lab

John Hancock College Prep



The mission of Academic Lab is to promote student growth and achievement while enhancing the academic experience for all students. Students are provided with flexible opportunities to access resources in a collegiate style environment that enables them to exercise responsible use of time while honing their executive functioning skills. This mission is congruent with the John Hancock College Prep mission and vision, our core values of Respect, Integrity, and Responsibility, and our commitment to create Hancock graduates who are intellectually competent, communally skilled, and socially just.
