Opportunity Program

The Comprehensive Support Program serves students who had difficulty working towards their full academic and social potential during their 9th grade year. The students in this program have entered their 10th grade year behind in credits and often with a discipline record. The ultimate goal of this program is to help these students become critically self-aware through social and emotional learning. Without understanding the root issues behind academic struggle, these students cannot move forward on the path toward graduation and ultimately toward becoming productive, contributing members of society.

The students in this program reflect on their core values and use these values to build strong character and an intact, moral compass to guide them through the decision making process. Students use this moral compass to set and achieve goals, both academic and social, as well as to navigate the difficult landscape of the high school environment. Students learn to address the issues that hold them back and deal with them appropriately. By developing a strong sense of self, students are able to visualize a life marked by success and begin to take important steps towards sustainable growth and independence.
