HCA graduates have a record of attending and excelling at large and small public and private universities all over the country. Many of them are honor students, graduate early, attend graduate schools, and become top achievers.  One of the things that sets HCA apart from other schools is our excellent college counselor.  She works hard to help each student find a college that is the best fit for them.  The college process can be very overwhelming for both student and parent. The counselor helps  the students break down the process to help make it manageable; facilitates the process to find that right fit for each student, and helps the parents navigate the financial aspect as well.  HCA graduates receive excellent scholarship offers in academics, sports, fine arts, leadership, community service, and much more because of the experiences, opportunities, education, and support they receive at HCA. This enables many of them to attend universities that their families could not otherwise afford. Many of them will enter college with a whole semester of college under their belt because of our on–campus dual credit program. This not only reduces the amount of tuition they will pay, but it gives them tremendous confidence in their ability to be successful in college. Another  contributing factor to the scholarship success is a Life Skills class taught by our college counselor. The class breaks the process of college admissions and scholarship applications into a weekly manageable journey. Students complete all necessary forms as part of the class, but also cover practical topics like budgeting, resume’ writing, job interviews and basic etiquette.  Heritage students also get the benefit of a counselor who is able to spend quality time getting to know their personalities and skill sets so each individual is equipped to make the best college decision.
