School Notes

  • "Small group" program 1st 8 th grade Students at this level require a greater level of academic or social support. Students at this level may need additional augmentation to academic materials requiring a greater level of individualization of materials for academic success. The goal is to provide the bridge from this augmentation to more traditional materials as is possible. Students at this level may need a greater level of social or independence coaching to help them gain the skills to be completely independent and successful academically and socially in a larger setting. By providing this academic or social support, the goal for these students hopefully provide the foundation to be successful at some point in the future outside of this smaller setting. The majority of our students fall into this program.

  • "Small group plus" Program 1st 8 th grade Students in this program require a greater level of both academic and social support. Students may need additional augmentation to academic materials requiring a greater level of individualization of materials for academic success. The goal is to provide the bridge from this augmentation to more traditional materials as is possible. Students at this level also need social or independence coaching to help them gain the skills to be completely independent and successful academically and socially in a larger setting. By providing this academic and social support, the goal for these students is to gain the skills to be at a small group tuition level in subsequent years, if possible, and hopefully provide the foundation to be successful at some point in the future outside of this smaller setting.

  • High school Grades 9th 12th graduation program This program targets students who still need the small, flexible environment our school provides but have the ability, with the augmentation and support we provide, to graduate from high school with a regular high school diploma. As is done in our elementary and middle school classrooms, State standard classes are the format, but academic level is adjusted to the needs of the individual student. Students move through the standards at their own pace and are able to obtain a regular high school diploma. At this time, this program does not support students working at grade level for regular high school classes but is designed to fill the gap for students that would traditionally get passed along from grade level to grade level without gaining the skills needed to prepare them for post high school goals such as vocational or technical school, military service or going into the workforce with the skill to be successful in those settings and real choice for their future. A minimum academic functioning level is required for this program. Students who do not meet that level will be considered on an individual basis to determine if the school can accommodate the student in this program or other programs within our setting.

  • Young Adult Program 9th 12th vocational program This program targets students who still need the small, flexible environment our school provides but academically are still working at the lower elementary level. Augmentation to standards for a regular high school diploma is not the goal in this program. Students in the program enter Alexsander Academy at the high school level but are able to remain until young adulthood. Students in this program continue to focus on academics but those academics are not standards based. The focus is on increasing reading and reading comprehension skills, real world math skills, problem solving skills and focus on real world science and social studies concepts such as current events and government. The goal for these students is to help them gain as much skill as possible, to foster social connections and independence and to prepare them for life in the working world.
