Genesis Program

Building where Genesis Program is held


WELCOME TO GENESIS!The Genesis alternative program is a comprehensive approach to learning that not only builds academic skills, but also fosters growth in independence, self-efficacy, resilience, goal-setting, futures planning, and intensive engagement. This innovative school challenges students academically and holds them accountable to the standards of  21st Century Learning. Our environment promotes student engagement through project-based learning, and in addition to this smaller environment, students are able to access the enrichment and extracurricular activities offered by the main campuses. This dynamic allows for a continued connection to peers, teachers, and community.
