The student body at HSC is diverse, drawing from New Haven and surrounding areas. We take pride in being a school that encourages our students to be critical thinkers and to question the world around them. Through their work in and out of our school building, our students work to establish a strong educational foundation and a more just society.
Recent HSC graduates have been accepted to Yale University, Howard University, Fairfield University, Boston College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Bennington College, Hampshire College, Unity College, Quinnipiac University, St. John’s University, University of Connecticut Storrs, University of New Haven, SCSU, CSSU, ECSU, and more.
