Thomas Edison


Many students struggle in a large comprehensive high school setting. And many are dealing with personal issues or family tragedies that have impacted their ability to succeed in high school. We understand.

Our team of professionals will work with you to create an "Individualized Learning Plan."  This plan will enable you to work at your own pace in a blended learning model of computer-driven curriculum with support from our certificated teachers.
