Mistakes and poor choices remove some students from the traditional learning environment but the SCPS system remains committed to their education. Working with community partners, SCPS provides alternatives to the traditional high school experience to offer students a second chance at the education they need.

Students participating in alternative programs are completing their education in record numbers and making better academic and behavioral choices. Funding is critical for these programs that expose students to vastly greater choices through college tours, workforce trips, hands-on materials and resources, as well as assistance with testing and certification fees.

SCPS alternative programs impact society as we must teach and expect students to become redirected and productive citizens in today’s world.
