About This School
Kent Phoenix Academy offers five unique high school programs to students in the Kent School District. Each program has a different approach and focus for students who feel they want a learning environment different from a traditional high school. Project-based learning, service-learning, and work with colleges and employers is an integral part of all five programs to help prepare students for post-secondary education and the workforce. Students achieve personal goals and build self confidence while participating in selected programs directly connected to their local and global community. Students will gain important literacy, math, and 21st century skills such as problem-solving, critical thinking, information literacy, communication, use of technology, teamwork, and leadership skills.
Alternative schools are public schools that offer nontraditional education for students whose needs cannot be met in a regular, special education, or vocational school. While alternative schools are distinct from regular, special education, and vocational schools in their teaching approach or classroom environment, they can provide similar services and/or curriculum for students. Alternative schools include schools for potential dropouts, residential treatment centers for substance abuse, schools for chronic truants, and schools for students with behavioral problems.
