Welcome to HCAM

We are so thrilled to be one of only two North Carolina High Schools to be accepted into NC A+ Arts Schools program and to be the only Creative Arts High School in Catawba County! We welcome new students!

Click Here - K 64 Agreement Form

Prior to the start of school, parents/guardians of middle school and high school students, who wish for their children to receive a K-64 Chromebook during the upcoming school year, must sign an agreement form. The digital information and required signature form are available online for parents/guardians (you must have a valid email address): bit.ly/hpschromebook2019 

If you prefer to preview the information and sign the agreement form “in-person,” each middle and high school will schedule information sessions, posted on the schools’ websites. Questions? Give us a call: 828-328-6738
