Winamac Community High School’s new alternative learning program has been granted full approval by the Indiana Department of Education.
The Warrior Academy is a program that gives students the freedom to work at their own pace to complete their coursework. Now that it’s been approved by the state, it’s now eligible for alternative education grant funding.
Currently, the program is being used for credit recovery, but now that additional funding’s available, the school may consider the possibility of expanding the program to allow students to take classes that don’t fit into their regular schedule or ones that the school doesn’t currently offer.
After visiting the Warrior Academy last week, DOE alternative education specialist Julia Johns notified school officials of the approval this past Monday.
