  • Striving to provide a safe and nurturing educational environment where all students will acquire the skills, knowledge, and competencies necessary for successful participation in our changing society.


    Mission

    Our mission is to address the educational needs of each student on a personal level. All students are unique and learn in a different way, but we believe that all students are capable of learning. We are committed to ensuring that all graduates are equipped with the skills necessary to make it in the post-high school world with a clear view and plan for the future.

    Philosophy

    There are two basic purposes of the St. James Alternative School. The first is to help a student get back into the regular school program by earning missed or lost credits. The second is to provide an additional path for students to complete a high school diploma by successfully meeting graduation standards. The St. James Alternative School has implemented two programs to aid in this process: MO Options and Flex program. Both will be outlined in this handbook.

    Goals 

    To help a student earn credits to get the student back on a timely pathway to graduation
    To help students catch up on credits and reenter into the regular educational program
    To provide rigorous, alternative instruction strategies that best fit the student’s learning process
    To provide a complete education that addresses a student’s curricular needs, future career needs, emotional needs, attendance/discipline needs, and additional student service needs
