Who are these Division 2 schools offering money? There are only 7 Division 2 hockey hockey schools in the country, period. It’s fine to get youth hockey advice on this Board, but if your kid is good enough to play college hockey, which you won’t know until he is in high school, you really shouldn’t be looking here. As far as the academy model, focus on whether it’s an actual school (in person) or just virtual. You can’t lump Shattuck (or Mount) in with this new Lovell Academy.
