McKinney-Vento Services for Homeless Students and Unaccompanied Youth

Hogan Preparatory Academy is dedicated to helping all of its students, including those that lack a fixed regular and adequate nighttime residence.  There are federal programs in place to assist these families under the McKinney-Vento Federal Act.  Homeless students are automatically eligible for certain programs including, but not limited to, transportation assistance, enrollment assistance, free meals at school, and instructional assistance through Title I.
