Burnsville, MN 55337-0554
Tel: (952)277-0809

For fifteen years, Sobriety High has brought new hope to chemically-dependent students in grades 9—12.
To be eligible to attend SHS, students must be committed to maintaining their sobriety and continuing their education.
Sobriety High School is not a treatment center or recovery program.
It is, however, a safe and caring place for students in recovery to receive a quality education.
