MISSION & VISION
To provide access to a meaningful high school experience for students who have faced significant barriers to their education, building the skills necessary to become independent and successful in a competitive, post-secondary world.
We embrace that each student’s history is unique and every circumstance is different; our school responds to the varying needs of all of our learners. We work as a team to help our students identify obstacles to their success and work creatively to empower our students to overcome these obstacles. Utilizing a customized level of support, engaging curriculum that encourages collaboration, meaningful experiences outside of the classroom, and an emphasis on socio-emotional growth our students will graduate as critical thinkers who are independent and successful contributors to the community.
