Welcome to the Learning Post High School
Learning Post High School is the Hart District’s independent study school. It was opened in 1980 – over 35 years ago. It is WASC accredited & NCAA approved just like other high schools in the Hart District. Dr. Pete Getz is the Principal of Learning Post High School and Academy of the Canyons.

Learning Post High School offers two independent study options, The Post and Hart@Home. The first being The Post, and it is located on the COC-Valencia campus in the University Center. The second option is Hart@Home and it is located on Spirit Court, in the Annex building next to the district office.
All Learning Post High School students – The Post and Hart@Home have the option of dual enrollment at their residence area school. Students are allowed to take one or two classes at their dual enrollment school. Class requests are arranged by the Learning Post High School academic counselor and are based on space availability. If a student is participating in a CIF level sport at their residence area school, there is a requirement of taking two classes for dual enrollment – PE/sport and one additional class. CIF participants must meet all CIF/district requirements for participation.

Learning Post High School offers a unique and personal graduation ceremony where the supervising teachers speak briefly about each of their students. Families rave time and time again about how much they appreciated the personal, up close ceremony for their Learning Post High School graduate. If a Learning Post High School student has dual enrollment during their final semester, they have the option of requesting to participate instead in their residence area school’s graduation ceremony.

The process for enrollment at Learning Post High School begins with an application. A choice of The Post or Hart@Home is selected on the application. A transcript must be included with the application unless the applicant is currently enrolled in one of the Hart District schools.
