Through our Digital Fluency Initiative, every HFCR scholar receives a Chromebook, on which they complete a majority of their schoolwork, and which is theirs to keep after graduation.

Scholars build lasting relationships with mentors and coworkers at their Corporate Work Study Program job placements, helping them build a network of professional contacts for their future careers.

Small class sizes and protected study and counseling time ensure that scholars receive individualized support from their teachers, college counselor, and school social worker.

In the workplace, scholars gain invaluable experience typically unavailable to high school students, in fields like medicine, law, finance, and more.
