We recommend students start with us in the 9th grade, as it gives us more time to equip them with academic skills and content knowledge, and it allows the students to meet graduation requirements more easily. However, as a small and flexible school, we are often able to accept students in 10th and 11th grades; we support those students in meeting our graduation requirements, and we can often compensate for gaps in their transcripts from former high schools.
