Fresh Start

INSPIRE Students, CONNECT to Purpose, EMPOWER for the Future!

In Fresh Start, we recognize that education is not a one-size fits all experience. We believe that all students have the potential to be successful in school and in life when they have access to the skills needed. We teach social, emotional, and academic skills such that each student can find their own path to success in education.

Fresh Start is one-semester program designed to support students in 9th-10th grades that need a clean slate. Students will learn the essential skills needed to re-engage in their own education while earning credits in English, Math, and Financial Life Management. Students will also learn social-emotional skills through the Discovery Program and participate in Service Learning.
