Alternative high school programs

For at-risk students who have trouble thriving in the traditional school setting, we offer alternative education tracks.

These programs feature small class sizes that offer the ability for the student to benefit from plenty of personal attention.


PASS, which stands for Prevocational Alternative Student System, is the name of our alternative education offering at AEC.

PASS serves students grades 9 to 12.

Our alternative education program at NFEC, for grades 9-12, is undergoing an overhaul in the 2023-2024 school year. Changes include a shift to full-day instruction at NFEC, block scheduling and quartering of credits, and a new name for the program.
