Phoenix Academy/Alternative Pathways

Due to the small segment of the student population needing Alternative Education services, it is cost prohibitive for districts to independently operate their own programs.

Our Alternative Education program offerings are designed to offer specialized learning opportunities for students whose learning interests and unique style differ from the traditional school setting and who might also be at risk of not participating fully in their home schools. Curriculum is approved by the New York State Education Department and is aligned with the Common Core Learning Standards. Students receive academic credits for coursework and can earn their Regents Diploma. Content certified teachers in all core academic areas are needed to staff the program.
