The course selection process begins in early April each year. HCSS teachers, staff, and administration are dedicated to affording our students the best education possible. 

We are committed to providing every student with a rigorous curriculum that not only challenges but inspires creativity and hopes to ignite new interests and passions within our students in the four years they are with us. This program of studies will offer details on the academic options available to the students of Hampden Charter School of Science.

Our guidance department will assist students in making the best choices to suit their needs. We hope that our students will create a schedule that challenges them but is also enjoyable.  Courses taken in high school have a direct impact on college acceptances, colleges and universities want to see that applicants enrolled in challenging courses and pushed themselves every step of the way.  At Hampden Charter School of Science we offer a fantastic variety of Advanced Placement courses and we encourage all eligible students to challenge themselves with at least one AP course.  Close to 80% of our students have taken at least one AP course during their time in high school!
