Community Engagement

Developing strong connections creates a bridge between the learner and the community in an increasingly globalized world. As one of our four pillars, civic engagement is central to our mission of student empowerment and personal growth.

 

HPS students are required to complete a minimum of 20 Community Service Hours per year, though many students choose to exceed the base requirement. With our focus on blending personal and academic growth, students reflect on their service through an annual project requirement.

Community service acts as an opportunity for students to come together, collaborate, and share in meaningful experiences. We offer opportunities for students to plan group service trips, travel internationally for service, and create individualized service projects directed at a particular community need. Students engage within our small school community as well as the larger communities around us through service, reflection, and engagement.

“The administration is incredibly student-focused and understands the different learning styles that make a learning community. Our daughter has felt supported, has grown academically, and has connected socially. We really couldn’t have asked for a better school experience!”
