Principal's Welcome

To Students and Families:

 

Thank you for choosing our program! Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward to working with you. Our schools are programs of choice. This means students apply to attend and we are very grateful for the opportunity to work with our students. Our programs are designed to be built for your student’s needs. 

 

We offer weekly instruction with a menu of options for students to develop their academic and professional skills and recover credits faster. We have several programs that allow students to earn credits online, through work, and experiences we offer outside of the classroom through field trips and projects. 

 

Students will be tracking their own progress and setting deadlines to achieve their goals. Some students may choose to remain with our program all year, some may choose to earn credits with our program as well as at their home school and return to graduate with their comprehensive high school, attend classes with our program as well as DVC/LMC,  or some may choose to earn credits faster and graduate early based on the choices made throughout the year.

 

Students need to understand they have to be prepared to enroll in an independent study program. Independent study students must meet the SAME requirements as students do at their comprehensive schools . Students need to commit to setting goals and achieving them through daily practice. This commitment will not only improve their academic skills but their professional skills as well. We believe in the value of helping students earn a diploma and be ready for college and career upon graduation. 

 

We believe in working with parents and our community. We are always working to develop partnerships so that students have the support they need to achieve their goals. We commit to communicating with parents regularly. We also invite parents to participate in our programs in a variety of ways so that parents can be an integral part of their student’s success.

 

We are working on several new projects this year. We will be offering new monthly opportunities for students to earn credits faster through regular field trips and projects. We will be offering a Boxing program as well as Latin and Hip Hop dance classes for students to earn credits for PE and/or electives. 

 

Thank you for considering our program. We look forward to working with you this year. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email. We will be back in the office August 1st. Have a wonderful summer. We appreciate the opportunity to work with our students and we believe it is a privilege to be a part of their journey.

 

Sincerely, 

 

Heather Morelli
