Welcome to The Phoenix Center for Innovative Learning
The Phoenix Center for Innovative Learning, originally known as the Alternative Program Center, houses programs that are part of Stafford County Public Schools. The four academic programs that are located at The Phoenix Center are each unique in their criteria for enrollment and the population that they serve. The Phoenix Center classes are primarily teacher taught, with online classes being used when appropriate.
The four academic programs that are available at The Phoenix Center are:
- Turning Point Program: A high school completion program that offers both a high school diploma or a GED
- Regional Program: Works with students who have been assigned to the program for a variety of reasons, and serves student in 9th-12th grade
- Middle School Program: Works with students in 6th-8th grade,who have been assigned to the program
In addition to the 3 programs listed, an additional program was introduced and offered as of the 2019-2020 school term:
- Evening Program: Offers a high school diploma completion program or GED preparation. Students looking to enroll in this program are typically students who, for whatever reason, find it difficult to attend school during regular school hours. The Evening Program offers classes at both The Phoenix Center and at North Stafford High School buildings.
The Phoenix Center offers individualized educational plans for each student that they serve. Regular attendance is required for all programs and the Stafford County Code of Conduct is enforced.
The Phoenix Center Administrator also oversees Adult Education, which offers ELL classes and GED preparation classes for adult residences of Stafford County during the regular school year. Along with the Attendance Services office staff, which collaborates with all the schools in Stafford County to ensure students follow mandatory compulsory attendance.
