Welcome To Our School
West Side Academy of Information Technology and Cyber Security, a proud Congressional Award recipient for its outstanding graduation rate among alternative schools in the country, represents the district’s only model for alternative high schools. WSA serves as the last bastion of hope for students disenfranchised from traditional comprehensive high schools due to poor attendance, poor choices made in the past or circumstances beyond their control.
West Side Academy, serving students ages 14 to 20 in grades 9 to 12, strives for academic excellence by providing students with multiple opportunities to accelerate learning through a personally-customized curriculum design. Our fast track credit recovery program offers online courses with tutorial support in conjunction with traditional courses.
