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 though our education partner, Independent Study, who is accredited and able to issue 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. 

 

“Transition” program – Grades 1st – 8th (ages 6 -16) - Based on availability-limited spots are available in this program  

WAITING LIST FOR 2019-2020 school year ----Students in this program require the greatest level of support for a student who is ready to be at Alexsander Academy.  These students have been in one on one or therapeutic environments such as an ABA program or have been in small group classrooms in public or other private schools but are ready to learn how to take their skills into a classroom setting.  The ratio in these classrooms is small with no more than 3 to 4 students on a consistent basis.  Some limited ability to provide 2 to 1 or 1 to 1 support for students that require it may be available.  Students, as they are ready, will spend time in other targeted classroom settings allowing students to learn how to take their skills into classrooms that require more independence and traditional classroom skills. Students may be referred to after school tutoring to build skills needed to participate in this program  to ensure the student is ready for the classroom setting and the school overall.

 

“Small group” program – 1st – 8th (ages 6 – 16)

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 is to gain the necessary skills to be at an inclusion 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.

 

“Small group plus” Program – 1st– 8th (ages 6 – 16)

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.
