The Anoka-Hennepin School District offers alternative programs for high school students who do not excel in traditional school settings.  Students are referred to these programs from their high school; storefront referrals for students who have dropped out of school and would like to return to complete their high school education.

The high school programs offer:

  • Academic high school courses using small group, individualized, or computerized instruction;
  • Elective courses that meet diploma credit requirements; vocational exploration; and
  • Independent study curriculum that will work in conjunction with classes offered in the program.
Students can self-refer to these alternative schools or be referred by their principal or counselor.  The program is designed for students who need a smaller class setting, more flexibility or for those who are not being successful in a traditional school.
