This program is designed for students ages 16 to 21 who are at least one year behind in earning high school credits and are not on track to graduate. We provide a safety net and personalized alternative for teenagers who need a nontraditional and accelerated pathway to successfully transition to college or the workforce. The vision is to reconnect these students and equip them with the skills to succeed in the classroom, the workplace, and the community.
We also serve:
- Students who have extenuating circumstances that prohibit them from attending school during regular school hours;
- Students who have been enrolled in high school for two years and are still classified as freshmen; and
- Students who have to work full time to take care of family responsibilities.
The Re-Engagement Center provides a hybrid of online learning and teacher-directed instruction. The flexible scheduling accommodates students' work shifts, internships, career and technical training, and academic demands. The program also operates in partnership with several community agencies.
Our students follow a slightly different calendar than the rest of the district, with an earlier start date and a longer school year.
How to apply
We accept applications throughout the year and review them weekly. Once you submit this initial form, our staff will review the information and the student's school records. We will then notify those who are invited to interview for enrollment here. We admit students in groups in July, August, September, October, January, February, and March.
For questions, please email Kim Beatty or call (859) 381-3795.
Note: Students who are not accepted at the Re-engagement Center should report to their home/districted school.
