HCS has committees which are in operation. These committees help to study the feasibility of programs for HCS, promote HCS in the communities, manage finances, increase the awareness of the school in the community and make recommendation to the School Advisory Council. The time and efforts of the members of these committees are greatly appreciated.

Calvary, St. Cloud and St. Joe. In addition to parish representatives, the school administrator and the two pastors serve on the school board.
