Through an agreement with District 287, HHS students are able to take Hennepin Technical Pathways Courses at Hennepin Technical College. Students in grades 11 or 12 may attend HTC during the school day, Monday through Friday, for 2 consecutive terms and 2 blocks each day to earn 3 credits.
High school students who are considering a technical field may enroll in courses offered by Hennepin Technical College at Eden Prairie to gain skills and awareness of career opportunities (a list and course descriptions are below).
Students may also register for college level courses (available online at http://www.hennepintech.edu/); please talk with your counselor as level 3 course schedules may be challenging to coordinate with high school classes. Testing is required for all level 3 classes; make arrangements with HTC.
Students must complete an enrollment form for either career level or college (level 3) courses.
Daily attendance at HTC is essential for success, earning credit, and staying in the program.
For a late start at HHS, all HHS students should do one of the following:
- If the student plans to stay at HHS, sign a list in the guidance office or attendance office to be excused at HTC.
- If the student plans to attend HTC, pick up a form in the attendance or guidance office for HHS teacher to sign, return with signature to the attendance office.
For early release days, there is no bus to HTC. Students will be excused but those who have transportation are encouraged to attend HTC.
