    The Phoenix Center for Innovative Learning, originally known as the Alternative Program Center, houses programs that are part of Stafford County Public Schools.  The five 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.
