The alternative program at Almond Bancroft recognizes that some students learn more effectively in a non-traditional school setting. As an alternative educator, I will strive to provide students with a safe and accepting learning environment that will challenge and guide each student toward his/her potential.

Alternative Education offers the following:

Credit Recovery

Students who have fallen behind in credits may complete their courses in a variety of ways. We offer coursework through a computer-based program called PLATO and curriculum designed by the alternative program staff. Curriculum is structured to meet the individual needs of each student. As our program evolves, more learning opportunities through video, webquests, and portfolios will be added.


Guided Learning Study Hall

Students placed in this study hall are closely monitored for success. I will pay careful attention to their progress in each of their courses and help students organize and prioritize their work. I am available to answer questions about homework and will communicate with their teachers on a regular basis.


GED Option #2

Students who are at least 17 years of age, and more than 3 credits behind their graduating class, may choose this option. Students are tutored in language arts, math, social studies, and science to prepare them for the five GED Mastery Tests.

Students are required to pass these five tests, or complete a combination of tests and credits.  Students of the program must also have passing grades in health, civics, and an employability/careers program, and pass the State Civics exam.  Students who successfully complete the program graduate with an Almond Bancroft Diploma.
