Hiawatha College Prep-Kingfield (HCP-K) serves fifth through eighth grade scholars. We offer a rigorous college preparatory curriculum as well as hands on learning and extracurriculars to support our scholars’ development. The middle school years are an important time for youth to take risks and explore new interests and we offer a safe environment in which to do so. Our scholars have opportunities to learn through technology, engineering, and the arts in addition to more traditional classroom learning. We employ national best practices to ensure our scholars have the knowledge, skills and character to be college ready while cultivating nurturing relationships with them.
