HSHMC Mission Statement

We created HSHMC as a place where young people could learn about health and healthcare, while receiving a world-class education in a safe and supportive environment. HSHMC is a home away from home, an open door, and a place of rigor and academia – where students earn a diploma that matters. We do what it takes, we do no harm, we set no limits on our potential to learn and grow. Here, we are all family – and we LOVE what we do!

Principle 1: Health & Healthcare

  • We learn skills and apply our knowledge through the lens of healthcare and health careers.

  • We practice and promote the health of our community and its citizens.

  • We assume roles, responsibilities, and advances in promoting health.

 Principle 2: A Home Away from Home

  • Every student has access to personalized learning, and is supported by qualified and caring educators, practitioners, and mentors.

  • This is a place where independence, responsibility, and accountability are fostered and respected.

  • At HSHMC, every student belongs, has a role, contributes, feels safe, and is a respected member of our family. As an academic community, we support and care for each other through conscientious decision-making.

Principle 3: A Diploma That Matters
