Message from the Principal

Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians: 


Welcome to the High School of Applied Communication! We are proud of our diverse school community. HSAC is committed to a safe and supportive learning environment that meets the needs of all learners. Our mission is to provide its community members with equity and access to the knowledge, skills, and resources critical to becoming future leaders and influencers. 


We recognize that the core of student success comes from a personalized learning experience. HSAC values the needs of each and every one of our students. Our strength is our size, as we offer a nurturing environment that promotes academic, social, and emotional growth. 


We firmly believe that a strong partnership at home and in school, will help all our students be successful. Students and parents are strongly encouraged to take advantage of all our valuable resources – meeting with staff members, attending PTA meetings, Parent Teacher Conferences in the fall and spring, and school-wide events. 


At the High School of Applied Communication, we value the needs of each and every one of our students. Persistence, hard work, academic achievement form the foundation that our students’ success is built upon. 


Individual pathways towards graduation are developed at HSAC, which both excite and challenge students while preparing them for success in college, careers and life. 


I look forward to a successful school year. 





Daniel Shin
