Grades: 10 - 12 | 19 students
item which has been noted, verified.
Lake View Academy was founded forty years ago by a church at the request of a group of neighborhood teens who for various reasons had left their previous high schools and wanted  a second chance at school success and graduation.
item which has been noted, verified.
They had formed ties with some of the church members and believed that the church would provide a quality education for them in a psychologically as well as physically safe environment - things that had been lacking for them in their previous schools.  We continue to provide an alternative for students who have become discouraged in traditional high schools.
