Northwest Iowa Community College provides alternative education to area high school students in cooperation with our many high school partners.
Alternative Education provides students who have dropped out of the traditional high school or who are at risk of dropping out because of problems at school or in their personal lives the opportunity to earn a high school diploma. Students are typically between 16 and 19 years old, come from all types of family backgrounds, and have a wide range of abilities.
The alternative high school curriculum is similar to that found in traditional schools with courses in language arts, social studies, math and science. Students may also take courses in parenting, personal finance and other life skills. Assignments are completed on an individual basis with students setting their own pace and seeking help from instructors as needed.
Northwest Iowa Alternative High School has sites in two locations: Sheldon and Marcus. The decision as to which site a student attends will be made by the Alternative High School, the enrolling school and the student.
If you think that this would be a good opportunity for you or for your student, please:
