Those values are strengthened and the total person developed through challenging classroom academic experiences, extracurricular opportunities, chapels, and social events.
Students participate in physical education, art, music and computer courses and may choose from various extracurricular activities such as competitive athletics, drama and competitions that foster a well-rounded educational development.

All three of my children attended and graduated from HCS. It was by far the best decision we ever made for our family. The teachers were wonderful and cared and prayed for my children. It was like a family.
