Academy for Success

Students using computers in a computer lab.

Our Mission

The ultimate goal of the Academy for Success, our Cartwright Alternative Education Program, is to teach appropriate social skills and behavioral techniques that will enable students to function successfully on a regular school campus.

Our Goal

Is for all students to generalize positive learned social and behavioral skills following the Boys Town model that are desired and expected in different educational settings across the school day and when transitioned to their least restrict environment (LRE).
