Alternative Curriculum

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.

The Alternative School is not a punishment program. Instead, it is intended to lead students toward success in the mainstream of education through the use of innovative teaching techniques, greater access to counseling services, more individualized course study, flexible scheduling, lower student/teacher ratios (15:1 or less), and a more supportive classroom atmosphere.
