General

  • Mission:
  • To educate the disenfranchised and at-risk youth of the county in grades 7-12 and to provide the surrounding community with positive recreational and social outlets. The school's goal is to send every graduate on to college or vocational school while providing them a safe haven throughout the day. Located in an under-served neighborhood, we also strive to provide healthy outlets for our neighbors in the form of the transformation of an empty lot behind the school into a neighborhood park, focusing on the themes of recreation, history, and community.

  • History:
  • In 1997 the alternative school in the county was at-risk of coming to a close due to the administering school's lack of desire of continue it. Several community members worked together quickly to write a chartering agreement and a few months later, the academy was formed. Establishing a place to call "home" was one of the first agenda items, and after several moves into temporary facilities, the school found a permanent location (a former elementary school) in 2006. All along the way, the school has been transforming from an unsafe, drug ridden school with little or no real education going on, to a school with a rigorous curriculum, well-trained and passionate leaders and teachers, and a non-violent and drug-free haven. We now send many of our students on to college and provide them with a hopeful future and the confidence to achieve their dreams after high school.
