Information about our Alternative Pathways
Alternative pathways refers to changing the academic setting of youth. We recognize that heavily populated comprehensive school buildings may not be the ideal learning environment for many of our learners. Like our students, alternative pathways seek to develop smaller settings to provide valuable individualized supports, both academic and personal.
Alternative completion programs offer secondary school-aged youth options to achieve a high school diploma, high school equivalency diploma (HSED) or general education development certificate. To learn more about our Alternative Completion Programs, please click here.
Alternative transition programs offer similar smaller settings and support for academic learning. However, transition programs do not offer high school diplomas or equivalencies. These programs are a shortened time period and work to build youth's academic credit and socio-emotional capacity. At the end of an alternative transition program, youth will return to their home school or an alternative completion program with a renewed perspective in moving toward completing their high school years.
