About This School
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. See Fairmont Youth Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Fairmont Youth Academy Reviews
Terrific school and wonderful staff
The teachers and staff members at Fairmont Youth Academy go above and beyond to make sure every student is learning and understanding each task at hand. They not only teach book work but hands on, building projects ,and computer learning. Best school I've ever been too.
