The real test of a high school education is how it plays out afterward. CAN graduates are successful, hardworking, and are making contributions in diverse fields. Here are just a few of the many paths taken by Concept Alumni.

Current Woman’s Basketball Coach, Future FBI Agent?
After graduating HSA Cleveland I went to Hiram College, where I attend now. I am an undecided major but I am leaning toward Psychology with a minor in Political Science and possibly Sociology. I would like to work in the criminal justice field, as an FBI agent or in the CIA or even as a detective in a police department. As a backup plan I would use my degree to get into teaching for a brief stint and work my way into the administrative part of education. Currently, I am student coaching the women’s basketball team, and coaching is something that I would also consider as a career.
HSA Impact
Horizon Science Academy helped me a lot as far as knowing how to build lasting relationships with teachers and learning to strive for the best that I can do. It has helped me be more diverse in the friends that I have and to better understand their cultures and practices.
I’m passionate about everything I do. I want to be the best at every assignment and make the most meaningful additions in discussions. I want to be at the top, and when I fall short I really have to learn from those mistakes and find ways to do better the next chance I get.
