HP High School



 
As a student enters Hyde Park High School, a Christ-centered approach based on small sizes, certified, caring teachers, and challenging curriculum in all subjects makes the difference. From Latin to Calculus to AP English IV, students achieve their highest potential. Academics at Hyde Park are designed to challenge students, while faculty and staff are equipped to help students achieve their academic best. A full range of academic offerings include Dual Credit Courses, AP and PreAP courses, as well as the LEAP Program, a successful academic support program. At Hyde Park, family expectations are high, and results are proven. HPHS  students complete their high school career academically, socially, and spiritually prepared for our nation’s top universities.

Hyde Park High School has a student culture committed to leadership, service, and integrity. All HPHS students participate in the Austin Christian Leadership Academy which offers students the opportunity to put principles of Christian leadership into practice. ACLA students work on public speaking skills and also develop Community Builder Projects that impact the Austin community and beyond. Additional Bible Courses such as Apologetics and Bible Doctrine encourage student faith in a classroom setting. Christ-centered leadership skills are also developed at HPHS through Student Council, National Honor Society, Youth and Government, Yearbook/Newspaper, and weekly Chapel. HPHS students learn first-hand about serving others by participating in a schoolwide Day of Service where HP students, faculty, and staff band together to reach out to serve over 30 non-profits in the Austin area.

Hours spent studying, rehearsing, learning, and growing ... it all comes down to graduation day. HP High School graduates leave their beautiful 57-acre high school home with discipline, responsibility, Christian leadership, and a dedicated sense of who they are and how they can contribute to our world.

Community Service

All students participate in Day of Service in the fall semester and GOweek in the spring semester each school year. Day of Service and GOweek allows students to serve approximately 45 hours per school year. Students are able to record these community service hours towards the Distinguished Community Service distinction and maintain their original documentation of all community service hours using their Presidential Service Awards account.
