Getting an education at WYCA helps prepare students for a successful future because it teaches them to have time management and note-taking skills, and works on communication skills with teachers and other individuals. It also helps students to build motivation and self-discipline, as they have to learn how to work individually— without a teacher right in front of them. WYCA’s curriculum is rigorous, and students have a wide range of elective options to personalize their learning and outcomes.
WYCA is unique. We are a relatively new style of education that allows students to learn in an environment that makes them feel safe and comfortable. We all try to really communicate with one another regularly to help our students succeed in a way that benefits them the best. Our parents have to be actively involved in their child’s education, and it becomes a total team effort to get our students to successfully complete high school.
I would tell prospective parents that they are making a great choice. But they also need to make sure that they are staying active in how their child is progressing and stay in contact with the teachers and homeroom teacher to ensure that their child is being successful. Communication is key!
