Ninth Graders will complete Prep Day activities and then be assigned to rooms to join different groups for camp activities. Freshman Camp is an opportunity to learn about preparing for the first week of school and being successful at Health Careers High School. Upperclassmen mentors will be on hand to assist students with lockers, planning and other team building.
Although your schedule can now be viewed on HAC, please know that it is only a draft and will likely change, as counselors are still balancing courses, etc.
Regarding requesting a schedule change, the next opportunity to do so will be at your prep day. As in previous school years, we will primarily be making corrections only, as the deadline to request a change was the last day of the 21/22 school year.
Please note that counselors will only be making changes for the following reasons:
- Athletics change
- Fine Arts change
- Replace course for which student already earned credit
- Increase academic rigor (on-level to Advanced/AP)
- Add a course required for graduation
- Change non-credit course to credit-bearing course
- Error on our part (for example, a course you did not request; alternates count as a request)

Dress and Grooming
"Due to outside regular contact with medical professionals, future employers, and the general public, a higher standard of appearance is expected for all Health Careers students than what may be expected at a traditional high school. We understand that the Health Careers administration and faculty will advise students on the responsibility of maintaining a mature and professional appearance, including coloring and styles of hair grooming, facial piercings, as well as appropriate dress and footwear." (HCHS Application)
There is a broad spectrum of what people may consider conventional and/or traditional in regard to dress and grooming. No written policy can account for every situation; however, we believe the following clarifications will be helpful when planning for the upcoming school year at Health Careers HS.
Any hair coloring that is not a natural hair color at birth is considered to be unconventional at Health Careers. For example, shades of blue, green, purple, many bright reds, etc. are prohibited. Large sections of multicolor shades of natural colors are also prohibited. For example, half blond, half black hair would be prohibited. Subtle highlights are acceptable as they are considered conventional at Health Careers HS.
Facial piercings, other than rings and studs in ears, are considered non-traditional at Health Careers HS. This precludes the wearing of gauges in the ears and piercings on the face (eyebrows, nose, lips, cheeks, etc.).
Students at Health Careers will be allowed to wear shorts according to the guidelines in the attached document. Please note any shorts or skirts must be of mid-thigh length.
