Four Schools - One College

Mission, Vision, Values


Learn with Joy. Live with Purpose.
Our core mission is to develop joyful and engaged students who live life with purpose. The best learning happens when students are happy to come to school, have opportunities to follow their passions, and participate in deep learning experiences that challenge them. Joyful, engaged students develop strong relationships with their peers and with the caring adults who spark and support their learning both inside the classroom and beyond. Their journey at HSC prepares students to live with purpose - to understand their world, inspire, lead, act, and make a difference in their own unique ways.

Guiding Principles

We learn with:

  • with an understanding of ourselves as learners;
  • with each other, and from each other;
  • with a blend of challenge and support;
  • with an expectation, and the encouragement needed, to lead;
  • with excellence honoured and demonstrated;
  • through creativity and an entrepreneurial spirit to think critically;
  • with resiliency in mind and body;
  • an awareness of, and engagement in, global, cultural, economic, social and environmental issues

Our Ideals

A unique element of our strategic plan renewal is the engagement of all HSC students to define the values that should guide our College community. We believe that living these ideals positions community  members to be well-rounded leaders with a sense of purpose.

The chart below outlines the HSC ideals developed by our students.
