Mission: To provide a safe and nurturing academic environment where students thrive by gaining the skills necessary to graduate high school, compete in the workforce and become successful in their chosen post-secondary path.
Vision: All students are safe, well, empowered and successful.

The program is designed for students as an alternative to the comprehensive high school. Students in grades 9 through 12 are served. It is designed with smaller class settings, low teacher/student ratio, individualized interventions, and structured academics. In addition to academics, students have the option of enrolling in one the many Career and Technical Education (CTE) elective classes offered at the Career Center starting in ninth grade. Students may attend the Academy for half day and return to the comprehensive high school for an additional two classes in the afternoon, or students may choose to spend the entire academic day at the Career Center.
Referrals can be made through the student’s school counselor to the program coordinator, Madeline LaSalle, LCSW.
