Aseltine offers students a variety of study options depending on their needs and academic skills: on-line classes; book-based courses; one-on-one tutoring; independent study; fine arts; vocational education.
Culinary Arts students prepare food for a school event they catered. In the program, students learn skills from cooking to safe food handling and preparation to healthy meal planning to budgeting while practicing social skills and learning an in-demand trade.
Each Spring, students' art studies culminate in the Festival of the Arts, where family, friends and community members view and purchase (at the students' discretion) the art students have made during the year.
Aseltine's garden provides students a chance to learn science in an interactive setting - and provides fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables for use by students in the Culinary Arts Program.
Art at Aseltine takes many forms: painting; drawing; furniture decoration; ceramics, and candle-making among others.
Participating in sports helps students learn to work together as a team while improving motor skills and maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle. Aseltine competes against other non-public schools as part of the CAPSES league. Options include flag football, basketball and softball.
Students participate in monthly problem-solving sessions where they work in small teams to reinforce their knowledge of science; improve their social skills, and learn to think critically and make thoughtful decisions.
To ensure a full and balanced education, Aseltine takes students to plays, musical performances, sporting events, outdoor activities, and educational venues like the Zoo and local museums. This not only provides Aseltine students with opportunities to practice social skills in the real world, it also provides them with fun and enriching experiences that enhance their classroom learning.
The mission of Aseltine School is to establish a partnership with "at-risk" youth in which we imaginatively challenge, support and prepare them to gain better understanding and insight into the barriers that have limited their access to "mainstream" school and community; develop the skills, knowledge and resources necessary to overcome these barriers; develop the self-esteem that transforms fatalism and self-doubt into purposeful action; and make an independent and productive transition back into school, employment and community.
