High School Extension Program Mission
The mission of the High School Extension Program is to provide a
rigorous academic program designed to advance the achievement of all
students especially in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics
within a small school environment. Rooted in the community values of
trust, honesty, kindness, loyalty, faith, citizenship, courage,
integrity, respect and pride, the school is dedicated to developing
habits of mind that lead to college or the world of work, upon
HSEP believes all students can achieve excellence in a positive,
challenging educational environment that stimulates their interests,
channels their energies, and develops their abilities. HSEP is committed
to providing a nontraditional learning environment for students with
distinct needs for these educational services.

increase skills in both academic and employment environments. HSEP
concentrates on increasing students’ academic and career/life skills by
offering opportunities not only to earn a high school diploma with
credits equal to the same levels of difficulty and standards offered in
CRLS, but also to receive personalized career counseling for
school-to-college and school-to-work transitions.
