While attending Senior School at HSC, your child will be able to explore their interests through their choice of elective credits each year, in addition to the compulsory credits. 

At this important stage before graduation, small class sizes, access to faculty members outside of class and weekly tutorial groups provide students with the support to ensure their success. Leadership, service and character education are also emphasized at the Senior School. 

Senior School faculty are highly educated and specialized in the areas they teach. Guidance is always available through the Student Success Centre (SSC), with eight faculty and staff members who oversee academic and course counselling, university planning, learning support needs and social/emotional assistance. Three additional qualified teachers serve as teaching assistants, available to offer support on a daily basis.
