Avondale Academy is the Right Fit for Students

Alternative School is Opportunity for Students to Earn High School Diploma and More

The Avondale Academy announces an Open House on Monday, September 12, 2016 from 3:00 – 7:00 p.m. for all students interested in earning their high school diploma. An alternative high school with a variety of education options, Avondale Academy offers a right fit for students who may have struggled in a traditional school setting. Students experience one-on-one interaction with highly qualified staff in a safe and structured learning environment. The Academy also offers a virtual learning opportunity where students are afforded the option to take online classes in a state-of-the art facility.

Additionally, Avondale Academy has a variety of other unique educational options tailored to dropout prevention and for students looking to earn their high school diploma and explore post-high school education. Each year, Avondale Academy graduates – some of whom had never before considered continuing their education after graduation – are accepted at two or four year colleges, apprentice programs or trade schools.

“The Academy staff works closely with our students to ensure that they have information about post-secondary education, as well as guidance and support. Because alternative high school students are often non-traditional students, people sometimes assume that they don’t have aspirations for continuing their education. The Academy staff doesn’t assume that. They work from the premise that all students have potential and deserve the opportunity to realize their dreams,” said Avondale School District Superintendent, Dr. James Schwarz.

For students not aspiring to continue their education after graduation; students with a high school diploma as their goal; or students who may have walked away from earning a high school diploma previously, the Academy offers a challenging curriculum in a success-oriented environment. “We have a lot of supports in place to help every student succeed,” said Principal Taylor Chapman. “We have after-school tutoring, small class sizes, multiple learning options including virtual classes, and individualized instruction accredited by the State of Michigan,“ he added.

Families interested in learning more about the Academy should attend the Open House on September 12. The Avondale Academy is located at 1435 W. Auburn Road in Rochester Hills. If you have questions about the school or about taking online classes, contact Taylor Chapman at 248-537-6699.
