Hiawatha Collegiate High School (HCHS) opened its doors to more than one hundred ninth graders in the fall of 2015.  We will add a grade each year until we are a fully-enrolled high school.  HCHS offers each scholar a personalized high school experience that recognizes and builds on their unique talents and interests and prepares them with the knowledge and skills to thrive in college.  All scholars enjoy a well-rounded program rooted in rigorous academics, comprehensive college support, and meaningful extracurricular activities.  We are committed to ensuring that in 2019, 100% of our inaugural class will graduate from high school, proving that closing the opportunity gap in Minneapolis and Minnesota is possible.
