The HCPS Evening School of Excellence serves high school students who:

  • Have experienced academic difficulties or personal challenges.
  • Do not have room in their schedule for all required classes.
  • Are at risk of not graduating on time.

The program provides an opportunity for students to complete coursework in evening classes and recover credits needed for graduation. The instructional program addresses the learning styles of students through smaller classes, more individualized attention and differentiated teaching strategies. For the fall 2021 session, all classes will be virtual.
