The instructional program at Cardinal Hayes High School is designed for each student to achieve their full academic potential. The program includes a wide variety of course offerings and five different academic tracks including Honors and Advanced Placement programs.
Typically, students continue with further studies beyond these minimum requirements with elective courses and/or further study in various areas, so that students graduate from Cardinal Hayes High School with more than the minimum 22 high school credits required by New York State. All students are provided with the opportunity to earn an Advanced Regents Diploma. For decades, our rigorous academic program has prepared our graduates to excel at collegiate level studies.
