HPHSCSC

Founded in 1991, the Community Service Council serves as the foundation of Highland Park High School's service activities, organizing several school-wide service projects each year and keeping track of students' service hours required for graduation.


The majority of our funding comes from an annual grant from La Fiesta de las Seis Banderas.


We have an active Facebook page, as well as a Remind101 texting system set up. Text @hpcsc to 81010 to get signed up!


HPHS is in the process of finding a new sponsor for CSC, so your patience is appreciated during this time of transition.


Please do not email the sponsors if your service hours have been denied until after you see what the reason for rejection was.
