Hamilton County Collegiate High began in 2001 as a collaboration between Hamilton County Schools and Chattanooga State Community College. The faculty, staff, and students are full-time citizens on the college campus. Students take college courses for high school credit and have the opportunity to graduate with a high school diploma and Associate's degree. The students represent a diverse demographic population previously enrolled in public, private, and home schools. There are four faculty members that work collaboratively to support student learning and achievement.

Our goal is to prepare students for success post-secondary and beyond. Traditionally a high performing school and a Tennessee Reward School, one key component to success is our personalized approach to teaching and learning. Each student is recognized according to his/her unique skills, abilities, background, and experiences. The Collegiate High faculty strive to develop students who are academically well-rounded and socially-emotionally grounded.
