School Notes

  • http://www.plazaacademy.org/what-we-do.html
  • The Plaza Academy is a school in which our staff, students, and parents work together to achieve academic, social, and familial success for teenagers who have been unsuccessful at traditional schools. We offer rigorous college preparatory academics in an environment that encourages critical and creative thinking through both verbal and written expression. The Plaza Academy designs curricula to meet the needs of teenagers and their families as we prepare students for college and other post-high school environments.  Our civic education model and therapeutic curriculum teaches our students to take control and have ownership over their own livelihood.   The Plaza Academy prepares our non-traditional learners for their type of adult success whether they matriculate to college and/or enter the workforce directly to begin providing for themselves.
