Second Start Alternative High School serves 40 male and female students, ages 14-20 years.  The day program runs for 180 days.  Students served include those with Learning Disabled, Emotionally Handicapped, ADHD, Speech/ Language Students, Other Health Impaired, and Non-Coded Students.

A student interested in enrolling in a program of alternative high school completes an application and has an interview with their parent(s) and the program director.  If still interested, the potential student asks to return to visit.  Following the interview, visit, and informal testing, the student can start at the next quarter break.

The Alternative High School has a certified teacher for each classroom.  Academic classes are held for 3 hours per day.  This can be combined with TET or classes at the student’s sending school.  Transportation within the Concord area is available.

The Transitional Employment and Training (TET) program is a specialized vocational training program, primarily for special needs youth ages 14-20.  The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a drug, alcohol, and violence prevention program in which counselors run weekly groups in area schools.

Since 1981, Second Start has offered an alternative high school program for adolescents who have previously been unable to succeed in a traditional high school setting.  The Alternative Program is based on the belief that some students need a small, structured and highly individualized school community setting in which to make academic and personal progress.
