Alternative Education
  • School of choice for students who find that their local community high school’s program or environment does not meet their needs. We strive to make a difference in the lives of our students by providing a positive, family like, structured learning environment. We help students acquire knowledge, practice effective planning skills, develop effective communication skills and seek community activism opportunities. Students are responsible for their own learning while working both collaboratively and independently.
