We know these are not the only paths taken by HHS scholars.   If your scholar is interested in other options and needs information, please have them reach out to their counselor. 

Counselors have also asked seniors to complete a survey to indicate their interests for life after Hopkins High School. Based on their responses, scholars have been or will be invited to small group sessions with their counselor to help them plan.  

Scholars in any grade can reach out to their counselor by e-mail, through Canvas, or by stopping by the Wellness Center to schedule an appointment if they need support in planning for life after high school, with academics, or with any personal/social emotional needs.  We are here for you.

Scholars and parents are always welcome to reach out to their school counselor with individual questions.
