Information for Seniors

Students who wish to receive a Hampton Park Christian School diploma must be enrolled as a full-time student during the final year of class work. HPCS will not count course work taken elsewhere toward full-time status or accept credit for course work taken at another school when the course in question is available through HPCS.

An exception to the above policy may be granted when a student has already met most of the necessary requirements for graduation and is taking fewer than five credits to complete graduation requirements. If a student falls into this category, he or she will be required to attend homeroom and chapel in addition to the classes needed for graduation.

Occasionally an exception may be made for a student who combines classes at HPCS with a trade school, such as the Foothills Vocational Center, during the junior and senior years but receives the majority of credits from HPCS.
