Welcome to NorthWood Achievement Academy

NWAA is committed to providing a non-traditional educational option for students who have struggled in traditional settings due to a variety of reasons. We embrace an educational philosophy that allows us to really work with the “whole student”. It is our hope that students that enter our door will leave with the social, emotional, and academic skills needed to allow them to be successful in all settings. We recognize that in order to have this we need a “continuous improvement model” to assure that all students are set up for success.

The Academy school day will be broken up into two half day segments 8:00am-11:00am and 12:00pm-3:00pm. Students are expected to adhere to the district wide dress code and rules set by the high school.
The Academy is currently using APEX online curriculum for all classes and will be transitioning for one or two years into a more complete alternative school setting.  The transition goals will feature:
  • Teachers with class sizes of no more than 15 students
  • Self-paced learning that allows students to work at a pace that fits their needs and learning style.
  • Work-based learning opportunities for juniors and seniors. (Apprenticeships or Internship opportunities)
  • Coordinated leaning efforts with local business and industry. 

While we are not there yet, I am excited to be working with your students and invite you to learn more about the Academy and how you can help us achieve our dreams.

What's Happening at NWAA

October News
SUPER VOLUNTEER!! One of our morning students, Noah Osowski returned this week after spending two weeks in North Carolina helping families and victims of Hurricane Florence.  Noah said they would work from 9 to 9 most days tearing out damaged floors and walls of homes that had been flooded and were contaminated with mold and mildew.  Noah and his dad were part of a team sponsored by a church that put each volunteer in a specialty area where they could do the most good.  Noah said that while they were there he helped in restoring 11 homes over the two weeks, but said there is still much to do and many people are still living in tents or unsafe conditions. 
NWAA is very proud of Noah and the work he accomplished.  Students who participate in community service and volunteer work can earn a credit for every 40 hours of volunteer work.
