Advanced Courses: Honors, AP, and Dual Credit
All classes at HCS are considered to be college preparatory. However, there are three types of courses that are more advanced: Honors, AP, and Dual Credit. Each of these courses are weighted in GPA calculations. For more information about the differences in these types of courses, see the pages linked above.
High school students have the opportunity to explore a specific area of academic interest in one of our 6 specialized Academy programs. These programs provide focused course planning toward specific college and career choices through curricular enhancements and experiential learning. Completion of academy requirements results in special recognition at graduation and on the student’s transcript. Learn more.
We set aside one week in March to explore possibilities, cultivate unique talents, and sharpen skills. Freshmen and sophomores complete special classes during this time, allowing each student to explore gifts and interests that may fall outside of traditional college-prep academics. Juniors head off-campus to investigate potential career fields up close through an internship or job-shadowing experience. Seniors participate in an exciting week-long trip that takes them to upstate New York and New York City. Learn more.
The role of Guidance Services is to support students and families as they navigate high school course curriculum choices and the college/career search process.
