The Hunter College Campus Schools embraces its mission to create a nurturing and vibrant educational environment for intellectually gifted and talented students. The Elementary School (K-6) and the High School (7-12) are predicated upon a deep love for learning and a respect for disciplined habits of mind, depth of study and passion for inquiry. The creative energy that is felt in our hallways, classrooms and libraries comes from the dedication of our faculty and from the extraordinary opportunities the students have to learn with, and from, each other.
Our teachers create curriculum that recognizes the diverse needs of gifted learners and our administration seeks new opportunities for enrichment, support and service-learning for our children. HCCS students actively search for new ways to learn about their world, both within and beyond our unique armory-styled building. Our parent and alumnae/i supports are invaluable to making these curricular and co-curricular opportunities possible.
While some of our students begin school with us at age four, most students join us in seventh grade bringing rich experiences from elementary and middle schools across all five boroughs. Students form relationships that last a lifetime. Hunter graduates go out into the world knowing they have the support and camaraderie of those who have graduated before them and who share the commitment to the Hunter College motto: Mihi cura futuri --the care of the future is mine.
