STrIVE ACADEMY (St. Johns Alternative School)

We believe that everyone can learn in STRIVE Academy.  Our purpose is to provide an atmosphere that creates a sense of belonging and ownership.  We encourage students to discover their potential and to develop skills which allow them to overcome personal, social, academic, and technological barriers to success that will allow them to redirect their lives and become cooperative, self-sufficient, and responsible citizens in school and in the community.

What is STRIVE Academy

At STRIVE Academy all of our classes are computer based.  We utilize E2020 classes through Edgenuity.  These classes use multimedia, animations, simulations exploration activities, videos and vocabulary activities to engage students.

How can computer based learning help your student?

Students are able to work at their own pace.  If a student is struggling with a topic, they are able to review the lecture and activities.  They may also pause a lecture to ask a teacher a question for clarification on the subject.   

Students can work on classes any time, any where.  Students that are working towards credit recovery, do not need to be slowed down due to weather delays, a day off from school or even waiting until teachers are at school.  Classes can be worked on any time day or night.

Parents, through the Family Portal you will be able to see what classes your student is working on, how long they were working on it and how many activities they completed.  You can also see what your students grade is in any class they are working on.

Please contact our office at 989-227-5202 if you have any questions.
