    Enrolling now!

    Located at our Northgate location, this program is specifically designed for 10-12th graders who are looking for a small, supportive learning environment. Typically our students benefit from small class sizes and more support from teachers. Our classes are a blend of group learning, as well as online learning, but students are expected to follow a regular school schedule and we do not offer a distance learning program.
