At HSC, students move at their own pace through an individualized program that incorporates law and social justice and arts integration so they can become truly college and career ready. Students enter at the Foundation level where they master the skills that are the foundation for academic success. Next, they move onto Core to master the core skills, then have a Focus year in which they follow an individualized learning plan, and then a Bridge year in which they prepare to transition to college.  

Students who move quickly through the Foundation and Core skills can potentially graduate in three years or can have a fourth year of college courses and internship experiences while still at HSC. Students who struggle might take longer to graduate but will leave college and career ready.

HSC is also a Higher Order Thinking (HOT) school. HOT is an arts integration program, which means that we include the arts in every class and every subject area.
