Impact Program


    The IMPACT Program (formerly called Second Chance) is a credit recovery program for students 16-18 years of age who are at least one year behind in high school credits. Students take courses on a fast-track schedule, which allows them to capture credits every 10 weeks and move at a faster pace than traditional high schools.

    The IMPACT Program meets Monday through Friday generally from 3:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. (Times may vary per school) Students receive free meals, bus cards, and supplies. The program is offered at no cost. The IMPACT program is a good fit for students who work during the day and/or need an alternate and flexible learning environment.
