Upper Learning Center

Grades 7-12

Mr. Jepsen's Upper Learning Center classroom is always up to something!
Whether it's building rockets or cardboard boats, cooking or model-building experiments, students are engaging in real life (and fun!) science.  These students also serve the younger classes in the tech booth for events or running the puppet show for the Christmas program!

Off-Campus Classes

We require our students to take all of their core academic courses through HCS (math, language arts, science, SAS, health). Students may enroll in courses at another facility provided we do not offer the course at HCS. Attending an off-campus class must not interfere with the student’s academic performance at HCS.
