Why choose an alternative school?

Page students are just like other students in our district. Some students have personal, social, learning, family or environmental challenges that make it harder for them to be successful in a traditional classroom setting. Some have dropped out and want to return to earn a high school diploma.

Here are some common reasons a student may choose Page Academy:

  • Credit deficiencies

  • Work full-time

  • Transferred to a new school and lost credits

  • Are managing medical conditions

  • Parenting

  • Emotional/school adjustment issues

  • Have social anxiety disorders

  • Have a learning disability

  • Experience difficulty concentrating in large classroom settings

  • Dislike for traditional school

  • Low GPA/failed classes

Learning Environment

Students learn in a welcoming, safe, and family-like setting and receive one-on-one attention from caring teachers. Students develop strong relationships with their teachers, which is vital to helping them achieve high levels of academic, social, emotional,  and behavioral growth.

Students are assigned a homeroom teacher upon enrollment.  That teacher maintains regular contact with the family and monitors grades and progress weekly.  Our teachers and staff are committed to our vision of “every student succeeds.”

College- and Career-Ready

We help every student explore academic and career pathways and develop a plan for life after high school. Students work with faculty and advisors to develop an individual career academic plan.  This engages students in a process to enable them to: 

  • Understand their own interests, strengths, values and learning styles

  • Create a vision of their future

  • Develop individual goals

  • Prepare a personal plan for achieving their vision and goals
