HPEC © After School Homework Tutorial

Vision: Striving for Excellence!

Mission: All students on the Honor roll!

Our philosophy is that children and youth receive supplemental education and new information in a principled, faith-based environment where learning may be evoked and encouraged pragmatically.

All students come into the education process equipped physiologically and emotionally with a brain and a heart to learn. All teachers ought to recognize the gifts, talents, strengths, and knowledge levels that children bring into the learning processes.

The Student's learning experience shall be further Nurtured by caring educators, trainers, tutors, and volunteers, who will challenge their intellectual curiosity while training their "brain & heart muscles" to properly respond to academic learning challenges.

They will develop the tools and skills needed to master any subject, whether English Language Arts (ELA), Social Studies/Geography, Math/Science, Business & Technology,etc.

The students who attend HPEC© will be well prepared for the future. They will possess principle-based character qualities and stabilized socio-emotional behaviors, allowing them to respond to life's challenges.

Every day El Capitan High School students learn new skills and practice their craft in acting, set design, stage tech and stage directing/producing. As the value of teaching the arts continue to be questioned, we are fortunate to have a theatre program at our school and a supportive administration.

The Gaucho Guild is comprised of ECHS' theatre students who are pursuing the dramatic arts in high school, college and career.  Some even have dreams of making it big on Broadway or in Hollywood, which I wholeheartedly encourage. At present we produce two shows a year at the El Capitan High School Theatre that are always open to the public.
