Welcome!

The Union Alternative Education Program was created to better meet the needs of Union students who have been unsuccessful in the regular education program. Students from ninth through 12th grades are enrolled in the program housed at 5656 S. 129 E. Ave.

Counseling

Counseling plays an important role in the alternative program, and all students are expected to participate actively in a broad range of counseling opportunities.

Students Volunteer To Attend Alt Ed

All of the students come here voluntarily, and they all sign student contracts in which they agree to attend regularly, to study hard, to go by the rules, and to treat others respectfully.  We have never failed to graduate a student who has been willing to abide by that contract.

Applications

Application forms may be acquired from a counselor at any of Union’s secondary schools or at the Alternative school site office. The intake process for the program is intended to be both thorough and simple. Apply For Union Alternative School.

Classes

Classes are held in two different buildings, all within 30 yards distance.  Therefore, all 160 students are not in the same place at the same time except during assemblies.  This separation keeps students from feeling overwhelmed by crowded conditions.

Diversity Of Students

Alt Ed students represent a broad cross section of Union students.  The only thing Alternative students have in common is that they were having a hard time getting through the regular education program before coming to Alternative.

All-Star Teaching Staff
