St. Johns Learning Center
We are proud to offer an alternative to traditional high school, St. Johns Learning Center. This is a small, alternative high school where students who struggle can receive one-on-one support and guidance through the high school years. Students work in a computer lab setting to meet all the general education requirements of a traditional high school. Classes are very small so students can get the assistance that they need.
Admission to St. Johns Learning Center is determined on a case-by-case basis. If you think your child would do well in this setting, please contact us at (928) 337.2255.

There is a homework component which requires students to do some work at home, but students may also do some of their classwork at home. Determining what is best for the student is part of the interview process, and we have a variety of tools we can use to help students succeed.
