Mission & Vision
We foster an environment of inquiry and a love of learning so students are prepared to thrive in STEM-focused high school, college, and the world.
Our students will enter high school ready to tackle any academic challenge and will excel in the STEM subjects.
HSA Southwest Chicago promotes six core values to guide its interactions with all members of the school community:
Respect – All members of the school community (students, parents, and staff) have equal worth and should be treated with respect.
Responsibility – All people have choices, and teachers, parents, and students should be responsible for their actions.
Integrity – Belonging to a community requires a commitment to the common good. The community is stronger when everyone can be counted upon to be honest and trustworthy.
Courage – Having the courage to try new things expands minds and causes students, parents, and staff to reach beyond their own expectations.
Curiosity – The ability to wonder and to create connections stimulates further learning. Inquiry will be fostered on the part of parents, staff, and students.
Effort – Success is accomplished when students, family, and staff are willing to do what it takes to accomplish their vision of the future.
