Core Principles

Small Learning Environment: Enrolling only 70 students, the Academy offers small class sizes, a high teacher-student ratio, appropriate class schedule, year–round calendar, community events and celebrations, and instructional and behavior management tools that enable students and staff to work together to create a safe and dynamic community for learning.
Strong Academics: The Academy is based on an intergrated service model, which combines expert academic instruction with independent living skills training, college and career readiness, on-site health care and counseling, personal growth and community and self awareness, and the development of an adult and peer support system.
Dedicated Staff: The Academy’s educational team is comprised of teachers, social workers, educational assistants, and a variety of special consultants. All students have an Advisor who fosters an environment for successful learning and personal development.   
In Building Resources: Our shared campus with Face to Face Health & Counseling provides another system of support for our students. Conveniently located on campus, our students can easily access mental, health, and prenatal care specifically tailored to their needs.
