Mary I. Johnson Alternative Education Program
The Alternative Education Program is a specialized high school program designed to offer selected students the opportunity to complete graduation requirements in an off-site environment. Students are recommended for the program by Pomperaug High School counselors, administration, teachers, and alternative education staff. The program provides an optimal learning environment and facilitates their academic progress, social-emotional growth and development while assisting them in meeting the requirements for graduation from PHS.
The program is also designed to enable students to develop the maturity, self-confidence, independence, sense of responsibility and social skills necessary to successfully make the transition from adolescence to adulthood.
