Fresh Start High Academy

In keeping with the Fresh Start High Academy’s mission and vision statements stated below administration and staff are committed to the concept that, “Every Child Can and Will Learn.”   Part of the Fresh Start High Academy’s plan is to provide adequate and competent staff, and to provide appropriate course offerings which will assist students to graduate in a timely manner.


The Fresh Start High Academy program is committed to the idea that all students can and will learn.  It is intended to create and sustain a learning environment which is safe, least disruptive and culturally sensitive to our student population, which will enable our students to modify their behavior patterns and improve academic achievement by getting good grades enabling them to return to the regular setting, graduate, and preparing them to meet the challenges of post secondary education, work and life.



The vision of Fresh Start High is to prepare all its students to excel academically in a stimulating, caring, and secure environment.
