Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. I am fired up for the all the student success that we will be celebrating this year! A huge welcome to all the new students, staff and families joining Learning Alternatives. I want to welcome everyone to a place where we will do things differently. Please know that there is nothing I will not do for you and for our school. Our goal is to create personalized innovative learning programs to help every student find success. I promise to make sure our school will always be a safe place where we lead learning with love. Last June we gathered to celebrate a record number of graduates. Our school graduation showcased what Learning Alternatives is all about. The ceremony included heartfelt valedictorian speeches, students showcasing musical talents, a student backflip and marriage proposal between two graduates. The whole ceremony is available to view on YouTube.
You will hear me use the words dignity, purpose and options a lot as I wholeheartedly believe this is what we need to provide all our students. Here’s what those words mean to the Learning Alternatives family:
Dignity – Students leave our programs knowing they have worked hard; knowing they have been challenged and found success. They know and believe that they have accomplished difficult goals.
Purpose – Students leave our programs knowing who they are; they know what they have to offer in this world. They believe their contributions are important.
Options – Students leave our program with the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful beyond the walls of our school building.
We work hard every day to improve the life chances of our youth and we never, ever give up on them.
Please know that there is nothing I will not do to support the students and families of Learning Alternatives.
