District 79: Alternative Schools & Programs

ALL students can achieve at high levels and succeed in college and careers. Guided by this belief,  District 79 helps students under 21 years old who have experienced an interruption to their studies to: 
  • stay on track to a high school or high school equivalency diploma,
  • build the skills to succeed in post-secondary opportunities, and

These goals are paramount for District 79’s diverse portfolio of programs for court-involved youth, student parents, and High School Equivalency students.


100% of students in District 79 will be college and career ready in order to succeed in the world.


District 79 will empower students through rigorous instruction and quality support services. A community of education leaders, District 79 will serve as a model for innovative and replicable strategies to engage students.
