Together, we can…

It takes more than books and computer, pencils and pens to create a learning environment that makes students want to succeed. It takes caring adults who refuse to give up on students. It takes students who believe in that glimmer of hope they feel when they've accomplished something – big or small. It takes a community of people – teachers, parents, local leaders and students working together to prepare for a future that shows a clear path to where students want to be.

  • Better preparation for high school
  • Individual attention to determine needs and paths for success
  • Credit recovery program to bring students up to grade level
  • No student will be left behind
