Dr. Karen Bishop founded Halstrom Academy (formerly Futures High
School) in 1985, envisioned a private high school that was
committed to providing individualized instruction to foster
academic growth and success for all attending students. Learning is
a personal, life-long experience. Optimum learning occurs when the
learner actively participates in the process. Instruction focuses
on the learner's skills, interests, needs, and rate of progress.
Students and instructors work together "one-to-one" to achieve
learning expectations and personalized goals. The instructor
develops a mentor relationship with the student. The intense
interaction increases the student's responsibility in the learning
process. The self-discipline required to work independently
transfers successfully to college and a wide range of careers.
Halstrom Academy promotes academic success, builds positive
self-concepts, and encourages appreciation for learning through
personalized instruction in a caring environment.
