HOW WE HELP YOU

...and your family

GOAL SETTING AND EVALUATION
We help you effectively plan for the student’s study year by providing tools for goal setting and evaluation. As a part of your student’s permanent record, you complete quarterly progress reports (provided by HCS) which provide a record of goals for your child as well as an evaluation of the actual progress of your student in their various courses.

RECORDS
We help you by keeping a permanent record of student achievement. Course grades and achievement test scores are among the information stored as a permanent reference for you. When the student is transferring from another school, HCS will request the permanent records file from the previous school. (HCS does not make student records available to anyone other than the student's custodial parent.)

GRADING
We help you facilitate record keeping with a standardized method of reporting grades, while allowing you to retain control of the actual determination of your student’s deserved grade.

ACHIEVEMENT TESTING
We help you develop a record of educational progress by administering the Stanford Achievement Test, Ninth Edition to all students grades 3 through 12 in the spring of each year.

How we help high schoolers...

ACADEMIC COUNSELING
We help you keep on track for a diploma. Each year, the administrator meets with each high school student and their parents to assure that the student’s course load will meet the academic goals set by the family. There is no additional charge for this service.

COLLEGE ENTRANCE
We help you by providing applications for the A.C.T. and S.A.T. college entrance tests through the high school office. These tests are administered at locations throughout the middle Tennessee area.

TRANSCRIPTS
We help you by providing a smooth application process to the college of your choice. Transcripts are developed which accurately reflect the actual education received by your high schooler. Individual attention is given to certification of your student’s course load. The charges for course certification and transcript copies are minimal and noted in the HCS Handbook.

GROUP CLASSES
Junior and Senior High courses are offered as determined by student interest and diploma requirement.
