Meshing Initiatives With Alternative Youth Education

MIWAYE is a non-traditional educational program designed to meet the needs of students grades 9-12 who are experiencing difficulties in the traditional school setting as a result of academic, behavioral, or adjustment issues. This program provides innovative, flexible, individualized instruction and a holistic, hands-on approach to learning that addresses a variety of learning styles and skill levels. Several key components to the program include:  

  • Providing for a smaller teacher to student ratio which allows for better needs assessments, a more personalized education and an array of self paced curricula.

  • Collaboration with families to identify and establish healthy alternatives to problem behaviors and facilities, and a transition back to the referring environment, when applicable.  

  • Assisting students in developing a positive self-concept and respectful relationships with others. Personal responsibility, accountability, and sound decision-making are reinforced.
