Hopkins Creates

Hopkins Creates! (formerly HAP) is a close-knit learning community at Hopkins High School, specifically designed for students who thrive outside of a mainstream school structure and want to take control of their educational path.

With smaller class sizes, self-guided learning, and devoted teachers, HC operates like a small family. The Hopkins Creates! community encourages one another to build on their academic success through freedom, agency and relevance and developing scholarly relationships. HC offers students who may or may not thrive in a typical classroom setting a way to tap into their true academic potential.

The focus of the student's learning experience in Hopkins Creates! centers on the development of their critical thinking, self-direction, collaboration, and creative skills in order to meet course standards and competencies. Students need to have a desire to do school differently and an interest in learning in order to succeed in Hopkins Creates!
