Fresh Start Academy provides academic and support services to students either at risk of not earning a high school diploma or wishing to return to school after a gap in their education.
Fresh Start Academy understands that Graduation Candidates have other responsibilities that make obtaining a high school diploma appear impossible. Our academies have extended hours, Monday through Friday, so everyone is able to experience the unique and custom-designed learning environment offered. Attending an Academy is essential to educational development, but because the learning platform is web-based, Graduation Candidates can work on courses anywhere with internet access.
Graduation Candidates are supported in every way, with access to highly qualified teachers and paraprofessionals, as well as certified social workers and guidance counselors. At Fresh Start Academy, Graduation Candidates can work in collaboration with peers, one-on-one with Content Coaches, or individually. Fresh Start Academy utilizes the most engaging blended instruction and technologically enhanced content available rather than traditional instructional models. By mastering one course at a time through blended learning online and face-to-face instruction with a Content Coach, the Graduation Candidate is able to focus on the task at hand and master the content at their own pace.
Working with Career and Life Coaches, Graduation Candidates are able to develop a plan that aligns with their future interests and attend events such as career fairs, mock interviews, and presentations from local business leaders. Furthermore, Graduation Candidates are able to create a digital portfolio of their work and credentials for later employment and educational endeavors.
Through these various efforts, Fresh Start Academy works to accomplish one goal: improve the lives of young people, their families, and their communities by providing an opportunity to earn a high school diploma
